The Pompey Politics Podcast, run by Cosham residents Ian Morris and Simon Sansbury, hit the one year mark on April 18.

Supporting opposing political parties, the pair use the platform to discuss the local and national matters of the day with guests including local party leaders, councillors and campaigners.

Ian, also known as Tiny, said: ‘We’ve tackled many topics in our own style.’

Simon added: ‘In our first episode, we bravely predicted the results of the upcoming local elections that year.

‘We went on to reveal how right, or wrong, we were. When President Trump came to Portsmouth we didn’t invite him on, but did talk about how the 75th commemorations of D-Day showed the city in a glowing international spotlight.’

Episodes are live streamed every Sunday on Facebook live at 6.27pm and are also available on Soundcloud, Apple, Tune-in and Spotify.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
