Matt Richardson launches I Am Prime Minister podcast

I Am Prime Minister is a podcast series bringing together comedians, celebrities, and political experts to deep dive into the world of hypothetical leadership.

Hosted by comedian Matt Richardson and adjudicated by political whizz Lorin Bell Cross, each episode welcomes a well-known face who – for the duration of the show – is handed the keys to Number 10. It’s then up to them to deliver the policies – no matter how wild – they think would make Britain great again.

Guided (or often goaded) by Matt, it’s up to the new incumbent to deliver their boldest and most imaginative policies, while Lorin assesses their feasibility and whether or not they are in breach of the Geneva Conventions.

Matt said: “Navigating the complexities of local, national and international politics is not for the faint-hearted. It’s also not for comedians and celebrities, but we’re not going to let that stop us.

“I Am Prime Minister gives listeners a blend of sharp political insight, laugh-out-loud lunacy and some genuinely sobering moments from the lives of our guests.

“Whether you’re a hardcore political junkie or just looking for some government-based guffaws, this podcast series offers something for everyone.”

Lorin added: “Margaret Thatcher once said that ‘Every Prime Minister needs a Willy,’ referencing her trusted confidante, William Whitelaw.

“I’m Matt’s Willy! I’m there to guide our potential Prime Ministers away from the pitfalls and cake-ambushes in modern politics and help them outlast many, many lettuces.”

Guests stepping into the PM’s shoes include William Hanso, etiquette expert, Sunday Times best-selling author and podcast host of Help! I Sexted My Boss; Will Best, host of Big Brother and comedian Rosie Jones, The Last Leg, 8 Out of 10 Cats and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

From Viral Tribe, I Am Prime Minister is available weekly on all podcast platforms.
