The World This Week - a whistle-stop tour of the week's political headlines - invites guest speakers, from from local politicians to academics and beyond, to explore the political happenings of the week. The show airs on Thursdays from 19:00, and across an hour will explore a series of opinions, both from the studio-guest of the week and from listeners who call, e-mail or tweet from home. Through its interactive nature and engaging weekly guests, The World This Week aims to pick through the seemingly endless stream of political news and connect its listeners in discussion.
Student life is affected by so many things, both directly and indirectly political. From the notorious tuition fees, to increasingly prominent issues like sexuality, religion, and gender. Nothing is off the table. The World This Week aims to provide an accessible dabble in social and political affairs, helping you to stay in touch with the world around you.
The show airs every Thursday from 19:00 on the University of Southampton's SURGE radio.
