We Need To Talk About...​

By Spotify

We Need to Talk About...​ is a new podcast for Spotify, hosted by Jolyon Rubinstein. Every week it deep-dives into the subjects capturing the news agenda, taking apart the big stories, flipping them around and giving them a good seeing to. The world’s absolutely crazy so we may as well have a laugh while we try to digest whatever the news is throwing at us now! A mixture of irreverence and anarchic satirical humour, married with genuine insight, context and little known facts, Jolyon and a panel of three guests seek to make sense of the world around us. There’s a new edition released every Friday morning. We Need To Talk About...​ is a Whistledown Production for Spotify.
