As conference season approaches, how can Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer sell himself to the nation, as well as to the Party itself? One man with a plan is Lord Peter Mandelson, Blairite grandee and one of the architects of New Labour. He tells Christopher Hope whether he thinks Starmer needs a "Kinnock moment", why he thinks the Party needs to lead a "complete rewiring", and in the political bombshell of the century, reveals whether he really mistook mushy peas for guacamole.

Also on the podcast, Speaker Lindsay Hoyle looks ahead to this weekend's G7 Speakers' Summit in his hometown of Chorley and gives Chris an ultimatum about the Speaker's wig.

And the Telegraph's own Lucy Fisher gives us a rundown of the movers and shakers of this week's Cabinet reshuffle.
