This week’s podcast is an Andy Burnham special, featuring an exclusive interview with the Mayor of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, discussing the positive effects of devolution. Burnham gives his thoughts on a whole-place approach to reforming services, Whitehall’s top down approach and of course football.

Plus we ask about homelessness in light of our ongoing commission, the report for which will be published next month.
