Welcome to On the Couch, a new political podcast from Reaction and broadcaster and psychotherapist Lucy Beresford. In each episode, Lucy is joined by a special guest to take a deep dive into the relationships making the headlines in politics today and explore the psychology of so much in political life.

This week, Lucy is joined by broadcast journalist and Reaction columnist Adam Boulton. They discuss Tory sleaze, toxic work cultures in Westminster, why Boris Johnson’s leadership has caused so many scandals and ask the all important question: does Westminster attract damaged people or damage them?
