Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance. iHeartMedia is the exclusive podcast partner of Pushkin Industries.

"If he's a clown, he's a clown with courage." Boris Johnson has experienced a string of defeats in his first week in Parliament as prime minister. He's distinguished himself as the only British prime minister to lose his first three votes in Parliament. Although things look grim for Boris, at the very least, he has conducted himself with courage. While Theresa May lacked the courage to deliver Brexit, Boris Johnson has made an effort to deliver Brexit in good faith. He has even urged Parliament to allow for a snap election so that the people, themselves, can have a say in how Brexit proceeds. However, his less courageous opponents will not allow an election to happen. People of courage are known for experiencing great victories but they also experience great defeats, as courage, by its very definition, involves a willingness to take risks.
