British politics is a nightmare to keep up with at the moment. Reading every think-piece or news story about how life is getting objectively worse would be enough to make your eyes fall out. That's why we created The British Dream, a podcast that pumps analysis of how everything is ¯ \_(ツ)_/¯ directly into your ears. Stay positive.

After saying she wouldn't seven times, Theresa May has called a snap election. She's decided that yes, actually, she would like a mandate – so if the people would kindly give it to her she can get on with Brexit and you can't grumble. It's nice of her to ask. Fortunately, The British Dream Podcast is here to articulate your hysterical delight, soothe your concerns and pretend to understand what's going on.

Recorded on Wednesday the 19th of April, 2017.
