The wait is over – the Tories have launched their official election manifesto, giving us a taste of what we’re all in for on June 9th. And it is not necessarily what one would expect from the party of small government. On the podcast this week, Iain Martin and I delve into proposals from all major parties, consider Labour’s recent rise in the polls, and make our predictions for the future.

Dr Tasuku Honjo has a mission: find a cure for cancer. In 1992 he discovered a gene that is key to the human body’s immune response. Now, 25 years later, that work has been instrumental in the development of immunotherapy – a new technique Dr Honjo believes could one day do for cancer what the discovery of penicillin did for infectious diseases in 1928.

In 2016, Dr Honjo won the prestigious Kyoto Prize for Life Sciences, and this week he and the other laureates were at the Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University to discuss their work. I was lucky enough to catch up with him in between lectures for a very special episode of the Reaction podcast.
