    Dr Tony Sewell, chair of the commission behind the long-awaited government report into racial disparities, boards this week’s rocket to Planet Normal. He tells Telegraph columnists Liam Halligan and Allison Pearson why a desperate attempt to discredit his findings prove their veracity, and why the term ‘BAME’ needs to go.

    Elsewhere, liberation from lockdown is edging into view, but will our co-pilots have their vaccine passports ready? Liam tells listeners why he thinks Boris Johnson’s current lead in the polls could rest on the matter, while Allison speaks up for Telegraph readers concerned for their freedoms, and shares a particularly moving listener email.
