This week on Policy Forum Pod, we bring you part one of our first-ever online live recording of Ask Policy Forum, the podcast where you ask the questions.

This week we’re bringing you something a little special on Policy Forum Pod. With an all-star panel of pod regulars, plus one or two new faces, we tackled your questions in the third edition of our Ask Policy Forum series. From hard-hitting policy queries on the health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, to the serious business of lockdown snacks, our panel answered the questions that matter to you – and had a good laugh along the way. The team is also joined for the first time by a live online audience of our pod squad. So kick-back, relax, and enjoy the Ask Policy Forum ride. Listen here:
