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're back soon, but in the run up to the new term we're playing you three of our favourite interviews from the archives.


This week, we're replaying the interview we did after Tim Farron resigned as leader of the Lib Dems, citing treatment of him as a Christian. We spoke to former Liberal MP and Chief Whip, and former Lib Dem Peer, Lord David Alton, who had his own run-ins with the party on issues of conscience; and Nick Spencer, the highly respected Senior Fellow at Theos, made the step up to the big time, from just doing interviews on the Today Programme.
