Can politicians ever be true to themselves?

I took part in this 50 min programme on BBC Newshour about Corbyn, Trump, Farage and populism in general. With reference to my new report The Populist Signal and also the optimistic flip side – the new wave of randomly selected citizens’ assemblies and juries engaging people in a new kind of politics and policymaking around the world.

The other panel members were Subir Sinha, Celia Szusterman and Brendan Nyhan. The presenter is Owen Bennett Jones.

It is available as a podcast here:
