Welcome to season two of On the Couch, a 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.

On the Couch with Lucy Beresford this week is Reaction editor, Maggie Pagano. They talk about how Boris Johnson’s short reign as Prime Minister already feels like a dream and whether Liz Truss is made of the right stuff to handle the many crises we face. And they conclude that so far she is off to a good start and that Sir Keir Starmer has a tougher job than he thought in challenging her.
