Politics and religion. Two things you're not supposed to talk about, because whenever people do it seems to end up in arguments😠, fights👊 and - worst of all - flame wars on social media🔥🔥🔥

What you really need is some calm, objective and informed chat from two people who've been in the game long enough to know what they're talking about. Unfortunately, you've got us instead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Holy Political Podcast is a fortnightly podcast about Christianity and politics. We interview some of the most interesting and impressive Christians in UK politics today, discuss political questions affecting Christians, and look at the good, bad and bizarre ways Christians get involved in politics.

It's mainly accurate, somewhat entertaining, and hopefully helpful. Give it a try! 🎧👌😁

We look back at Tim Farron's dramatic resignation, with two brilliant political thinkers - former Liberal and Lib Dem MP, Lord David Alton, and Nick Spencer, Research Director at Theos and editor of the new book 'The Mighty and the Almighty', which looks at the public faith of political leaders over the past 40 years. We're very excited to have them both on - and hope you enjoy it as much as we did! In two weeks' time we've got a summer special double-episode, and then we'll be back in September!
