    Is the US presidential race about to get dirty?

    Is the US presidential race about to get dirty?

    Kamala Harris raised a hundred million dollars in the day and a half since Joe Biden announced he wouldn't be standing for re-election.

    She has now passed the delegate threshold to stand as the candidate - and as we record no one else has thrown their name into the ring.

    Republicans are meanwhile having to accommodate the new reality of having the oldest candidate in the race.

    Later, we look at the UK broadcasting landscape with Ofcom regulator Melanie Dawes. Does Ofcom have teeth? And will it use them?

    Will Kamala Harris replace President Biden?

    Will Kamala Harris replace President Biden?

    There is a dizziness to American politics right now - Vice President Kamal Harris raised 49 million dollars in the first twelve hours following Joe Biden's announcement that he would exit the race.

    She spent ten hours hitting the phones to garner Democratic support and is insisting she must 'earn' the votes of the delegates. But is the race already sewn up? Or might other candidates throw their names in the mix? And how well do we really know the figure who could be America's first female president?

    We talk to Ambassador Tony Gardner - a man right at the centre of the Democrats presidential campaigns, and to our leading historian Simon Schama - about the legacy Biden will leave and what this moment means for America.

    Special Episode: President Biden quits 2024 race

    Chaos reigns in the Democratic party. In a virtually unprecedented move President Joe Biden has stepped aside from the presidential race weeks before he was due to become the Democrats’ candidate at their national convention in Chicago.

    Biden has endorsed his VP Kamala Harris. But is she assured of the crown?

    In a hastily assembled emergency podcast Jon, Emily and Lewis discuss the implications for the Dems, the election and the rest of the world.

    This week on The Sports Agents, Gareth Southgate resigned following England's Euro 2024 final defeat, and the world's best golfers tee'd it up for the 152nd Open Championship...

    The man who hired Gareth, former FA Managing Director Martin Glenn, joined Gabby & Mark for an insight into the process of finding his replacement and The Athletic's Jack Pitt-Brooke joined us in the studio to help assess the leading candidates.

    After Rory McIlroy defended his own caddie ahead of his first appearance at a major tournament since his US Open collapse, we were also joined by caddies Billy Foster (Matt Fitzpatrick) and Jeff Brighton (Colin Montgomerie) to find out more about the mind-blowing complexities of the role and how much difference a great one can really make.

    What is Clacton MP Nigel Farage doing in Milwaukee?

    What is Clacton MP Nigel Farage doing in Milwaukee?

    It feels like the walls are finally closing in on President Biden. His closest political allies, the leaders of the Democratic Party in Congress, are abandoning him.

    Every interview he does poses more questions than it answers. How long can he fight on? Jon, Lewis and Emily discuss.

    Talking of Emily - have you ever thought she might need to get her head examined? Kari Lake, the Republican candidate for Senate in Arizona, thinks so. Meanwhile, Nigel Farage thinks she has no friends.

    Listen to both interviews to reveal all.

    What is Starmerism? Labour's first King's Speech

    Keir Starmer promised "national renewal" in today's King's Speech, where he outlined his policy plans for the next parliament.

    So did we get our first glimpse of what Starmerism might look like? Is the state back? And do we now have the most interventionist government for decades?

    Later in the show we return to Milwaukee and the Republican Party National convention. Emily is there speaking to senior party figures and asking where all the traditional Republicans have gone, as Trump and his acolytes take over the GOP.

    “Full of cranks and weirdos” - inside the Republican National Convention

    Emily is live from the Republican Party National Convention in Milwaukee, a room full of "cranks and weirdos", as we react to the news that Ohio Senator J.D Vance will be Trump's running mate in the 2024 Presidential election.

    What does Vance stand for? Will he change the trajectory of the campaign? And is he even more Trump than Trump himself?

    Later in the show we discuss two men who have resigned from their jobs today. Welsh First Minister Vaughan Gething, and England manager Gareth Southgate.

    Has the assassination attempt helped both Trump and Biden?

    Emily is in Milwaukee for the Republican Party National Convention, just 36 hours after an assassination attempt on their Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    As both he and President Biden call for unity, we ask whether the shooting on Saturday will help both candidates. Is it an easier race now for Trump? Has it ensured a stay of execution for Joe Biden? And how long will this new-found unity last?

    Later in the show, historian and journalist Nick Bryant joins the show to talk about American's violent and constant battle with itself.

    Hours after Presidential candidate Donald Trump was shot at a rally in Pennsylvania, Jon and Lewis take a look at how the assassination attempt will impact the election in November.

    Will it strengthen Trump's campaign? And does it mean Joe Biden will now definitely stand against him?
