Now that we’ve Br-ucked Off, Blighty can look forward to supermarkets chock full of chlorine-drenched poultry. Lucky us (lucky chickens).

Why? Because that’s how chickens are made in America, goddammit, and Donald Trump smells a finger-lickin’ opportunity to sell stinky US chooks to a market newly liberated from Yerp’s pesky animal welfare standards.

Obviously that’s about as far as our understanding of trade goes, so we got someone in to tell us more. Returning guest Sam Lowe (see babble #42), from the Centre for European Reform, joins us to defend his fascination with one of the nerdiest subjects in the world and patiently explain why it’s actually quite important.
