Episode 2.2. Satire: Woke Politics and Political Tribalism

In episode 1 of season 2, anonymous Twitter account DM Reporter commented that you can’t be a satirist if you write for the Daily Mail. In this episode Adam and Jo talk to Andrew Doyle about that argument, and about Andrew’s own satirical Twitter account, “Titania McGrath.” Who are his targets, and how does he hope to change their minds? Is there any hope for the future? And exactly what was wrong with Frankie Boyle’s “joke” about Katie Price and her son?
