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 On the Couch, Lucy Beresford is joined by journalist, columnist and author Susie Boniface, otherwise known as Fleet Street Fox. They discuss the role (and possible influence) of the Prime Minister’s spouse, why some partners are more popular than others, the Lady Macbeth complex, whether Boris Johnson only does what Carrie tells him to and whether it’s time the nation had more compassion for Boris?
