Is PMQs more or less old-man than Book of the Week?

Listening to anything when running is absolute puntery

I would say less, I think Book of the Week is the hipsters choice.

And I don’t mind listening to the odd podcast, especially if the motivation is low..

Will, PMQ’s? I don’t even know what that is but not sounding ideal....

Prime Minister’s Questions Tash; real young person listening

I'm imagining that would be pretty stressful listening.. I know I would end up annoyed and cynical about the state of Australia if I listened to question time on a run.

On the other hand, Paul Keating in full flight was the best show in town back in the day (I'm sure highlights are out there on YouTube somewhere).

I was getting pretty cynical as it was surrounding the Windrush scandal. The British government once again showing its great lack of respect for its population, sad times.

It's too irritating/depressing. I get all my 'news' from The Bugle.
Premium Bullshit > news any day.

I listen to almost any political radio broadcast/podcast going and even I can't face PMQs.

Looking from Australia, the main takehome message I get from the Windrush scandal/fiasco is that there's another country in the developed world whose government is attempting to be as beastly to immigrants as ours is.

It is all just a bit too depressing, especially the more that comes out about it and how long it has being occurring. Nothing much happy in the news nowadays it seems.

Coincidentally, the Book of the Week I was listening to argues that, although the news is full of bad stuff, the true state of the world isn't so bleak because much of human progress isn't reported to people in the news.

It's called Factfulness and it was a good listen.
