Join us for a live breakfast recording of David Runciman’s Talking Politics podcast, produced in partnership with the London Review of Books. The morning after the US mid-term elections, our panellists will be discussing the results and what they mean for America, Britain and the world. The recording will be followed by an audience Q&A and afterwards, we’ll be serving a light breakfast (to make the early wake-up bearable). Featuring:

Gary Gerstle: An American historian and the Paul Mellon Professor of American History at the University of Cambridge, Gary Gerstle is the creator and presenter of a four-part radio programme, America: Laboratory of Democracy, which broadcast on BBC World Service from October-November 2017.
