Chancellor for ten years and Prime Minister for three, Gordon Brown is one of the most important and impactful politicians in British history. He's also a phenomenal raconteur and his anecdotes about Scottish football and Nelson Mandela will have you howling with laughter. With tales spanning his time in office and since, Gordon demonstrates why he's such a unique politician and character, just as animated today about inequality as he ever was. This is a glorious mix of high-level political insight, stirring emotion and massive laughs, making it one of the most special episodes of the podcast ever recorded.
