The Holiday Special, with guest Lisa Francesca Nand

Episode 10,  Aug 05, 10:00 AM

Are holidays woke? What's going to happen in the world of politics? What should we be reading this summer? And how do you get a free holiday? Find out in the HOLIDAY SPECIAL of NonCensored.

NonCensored is a weekly round up of Harriet Langley-Swindon's very popular, very real daily radio show, completely non-Censored (but with all of the rubbish edited out).

This week, while normal people go on holiday and comedians are getting their shows at the Edinburgh Fringe up and running, Harriet and producer Martin are setting an example to the country by continuing to work, and putting out this holiday special. They're joined by their Diversity Correspondent Eshaan Akbar, who asks Are Holidays Woke?, the Telegraph's Red Wall Correspondent Siobhan Connery to look ahead in the world of politics, and by the Times Literary Supplement's Lawrence Agadoo, who recommends some sizzling summer reads. Plus there's an extended interview with travel journalist and host of the The Big Travel Podcast, Lisa Francesca Nand, who lifts the lid on travel journalism, and tells you how to get a free holiday.
