    Amol and Nick are joined by fellow Today presenter and Americast host Justin Webb for his take on the big news. Who might Harris pick as her running mate? How will she frame Trump in the contest? And why might it all come down to the voters of Omaha, Nebraska?

    Starmer, Trump, and the New World Order

    Starmer, Trump, and the New World Order

    Sir Keir Starmer has been quick to meet with a host of world leaders since entering Downing Street. After his in-person meeting with Joe Biden, and a personal phone call to Donald Trump, Amol and Nick dissect how the new PM will navigate ‘the special relationship’ in turbulent times.

    And closer to home, European leaders are meeting this week in Blenheim Palace. Baroness Cathy Ashton, the EU’s former foreign policy chief, joins Nick and Amol in the studio to give insight on Starmer’s strategy. How will he fulfil Labour’s manifesto pledge to forge an ‘improved and ambitious relationship with our European partners’? And what will EU leaders want in return?

    Plus, Radio 1’s Greg James drops by to give his moment of the week and pay tribute to England cricketer Jimmy Anderson following his retirement.
