EA’s partner Political WorldView offers a special podcast this week, following the latest surprises in the Republican and Democratic contests for the US Presidency.

Guest David Dunn of the University of Birmingham joins regular panelists Adam Quinn and Scott Lucas to consider the likely nomination of businessman and reality TV star Donald Trump on the Republican side, and to evaluate whether Senator Bernie Sanders can upset Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

But that’s just the start. The discussion asks whether there can be a Trump Presidency — and, if so, whether this is the beginning of the Apocalypse for US politics — and there is a heated debate over the merits of Bernie Sanders as campaign and as a potential President.
