Series 1, Episode 16: Jess Phillips MP

When I present Channel 4 News, in-depth analysis and great journalism come together to explain the events of the day. But this new podcast wants to help you go much deeper and discuss answers, not just problems.

Each week, I’ll speak to one guest, at length, who will hopefully have some answers – without having to rely on a 30 second sound bite.

Our guest this week is the Labour MP Jess Phillips. She’s risen to public prominence as the feminist with big ideas about how to liberate women. After working for Women’s Aid, she became an MP to try and force real change in women’s policy issues.

She talks to me about why she thinks she’s powerful, why Jeremy Corbyn wouldn’t be a good Prime Minister, and her evolving stance on drug policy.
