Summary

The complete 96th series from the long-running topical BBC Radio 4 comedy panel show, hosted by Miles Jupp.

Eight more episodes featuring a panel of comedy guests who trawl through news stories big and small to provide comedy, commentary, irony and irreverence.

The guests featured in this series include Andy Hamilton, Zoe Lyons, Hugo Rifkind, Jeremy Hardy, Felicity Ward, Mark Steel, Holly Walsh, Andy Zaltzman, Lucy Porter and Vicki Pepperdine.

The panellists discuss the week's top stories, such as the treatment of the Windrush Generation, Trump and Macron's 'bromance', the Buddhist funeral of 800 defunct robot dogs, the USA's withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal, and Dr Dre's legal dispute with a gynaecologist of the same name.
