Chaos with Ed Miliband's podcast! Featuring producer Emma Corsham

It was a simple and inescapable choice back in spring 2015, wasn't it? Stability and strong government with incumbent Prime Minister David Cameron, or chaos with Ed Miliband. We, the British people, did not choose chaos with Ed Miliband.

All the Brexit palaver has sent the political news cycle spinning faster than ever, but there's one politician who's having a gentle bit of fun with it: yes, non-chaos-maker, Ed Miliband. First, he tweets at Theresa May ahead of her party's no-confidence-in-her-vote: "if it goes wrong tonight I can promise you a bright future in podcasting." 

He would know, he's got a successful weekly one called Reasons to be Cheerful.

Secondly, Ed really doubled down on all this stuff, and put an edited version of the chaos tweet on an Ed Stone (please google that) on the front of his Christmas card.

His podcast producer, Emma Corsham, pops onto Freelance Pod with the card to talk about how Theresa May might fare as a podcaster, the Geoffocracy and, inevitably, shark movies.

Emma works on a range of podcasts, and she can help you produce one too, so look her up on Twitter: @produceremma.


How has your industry moved from analogue to digital? Each episode, creative guests tell host Suchandrika Chakrabarti how the internet has revolutionised work.
