The Prospect podcast #51—Political cartoons in an age beyond satire

Jay Elwes speaks to Stephen Collins, Prospect’s long-serving cartoonist

By Prospect Team  

This week it’s Stephen Collins, the illustrator who’s been doing the Prospect cartoon these many years. Subject-wise he’s covered a huge range, but one returned to more often than not recently is Donald Trump. Here, we ask Collins how you find humour in an era that’s often beyond satire.

Plus: Sameer Rahim on new books about Trump and Alex Dean on Labour’s Brexit stance.
