William Davies and Lorna Finlayson join Joanna Biggs and Tom Crewe to discuss the state of the nation - the UK - in the age of Brexit. Spoiler: there are no predictions here! Instead, they talk about the trouble they have identifying with their own side, how the issue of Europe came to represent the UK's growing internal divisions, and whether we should be excited or terrified by seeing our democratic system put through its paces.
