The podcast that speaks your language. News and views from beyond the bubble with Telegraph columnists, Allison Pearson and Liam Halligan, every Thursday.
Planet Normal goes back to its roots and speaks to... a normal person. This week it’s brave district nurse and Planet Normal listener, Holly, who tells Telegraph columnists, Allison Pearson and Liam Halligan about the horrors of treatments delayed over the coronavirus crisis: a devastating move she thinks will cause more deaths than the pandemic itself. Plus, she reveals how care homes were “bullied” into taking patients with suspected Covid-19 and why some health workers used the pandemic as an excuse to stay home.
Also on the podcast: Allison and Liam reflect on Boris Johnson’s tumultuous first year as PM, the real reason teachers were among the public sector workers to receive a pay rise, and why former Speaker of the Commons, John Bercow, won’t be invited on the show anytime soon.
