As the spring series of The 9pm Edict continues, Rishi Sunak becomes the new prime minister of the UK — at least at the time of recording — so who better to join us than Scottish author and social researcher David F Porteous?

In this episode we talk about the joy that is British politics, plus Elon Musk’s imminent purchase of Twitter, Vegemite, poetry, hope, transparency, the concept of a “wellbeing budget”, some weird conspiracy theories about Rishi Sunak, and whether Queen Elizabeth II is actually dead.
