Double Take

A podcast in which we revisit our favourite comment pieces. Each week, an author comes into the studio to read their article, and we catch up with them about what happened after we clicked publish.

So far we have been joined by Matthew Norman discussing Trump's Russia investigation; Amrou al-Khadi talking about being an Arab actor who has been asked to audition for the role of terrorist more than 30 times; and Abi Wilkinson on why austerity led to the Grenfell Tower disaster. 

You can listen and download episodes on iTunes, Akast or wherever else you listen to your podcasts. Follow host @kirsty_maj0r on Twitter.
