Fred MacAulay looks at the momentous summer of 2016, a tumultuous period which saw (in no particular order) Brexit, the resignations of David Cameron, Roy Hodgson and Chris Evans, the non-resignation of Jeremy Corbyn, A new female PM, Labour leadership challenges, Nicola Sturgeon and the possibility of another Scottish referendum and Olympic glory!

Wet Hot Political Summer addresses the tumult of the summer of 2016, and begin to make sense of the new political landscape. Recorded at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Fred is joined by various comedians.
