In each episode of the UK in a Changing Europe podcast, ‘UKICE (I Tell)’, formerly known as ‘Brexit and Beyond’, we sit down with a new guest and explore their area of expertise. We investigate the key issues and discuss how and why it helps us better understand our society. The podcast was cited by the Guardian in 2022 as one of the best podcasts to understand British politics.
