Welcome to On the Couch, the weekly political podcast from Reaction hosted by broadcaster and psychotherapist Lucy Beresford. In each episode, Lucy is joined by Reaction editor, Maggie Pagano, and former parliamentary candidate, Mark Fox – and sometimes a special guest or two – to take a deep dive into the world of politics.  

With the economy in crisis, they discuss whether Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng were really to blame for the mayhem and whether that the departure of her chancellor would restore some credibility with the financial markets and voters. And why the new PM has learnt to her cost that you can never buck the markets.  Shock, horror they also suggest the Tories could still win the next election – if they are smart. Hang on to your hats.
