When you’re watching the news, do you ever get the feeling that you have missed something? A crucial piece of information or context that means you don’t quite fully understand what’s going on – but that it is too late to ask without looking like a moron?

Any Stupid Questions? is a new podcast from Danielle Ward (Do The Right Thing), in which she frees comedians and audience members from the shame of ignorance in order to ask experts some really basic questions. Why do we need an army? How much does the NHS cost? What’s the difference between the Council of Europe and the European Council, and which of the two has better bin collection?

This recording will see JOHN MORGAN from Times Higher Education magazine answer questions about Universities - such as "What's the point of going anyway?", and "Which university offers the best value for money?". We also have Professor of Economics at King's College, London, JONATHAN PORTES, answering some almost insultingly basic questions about money.

Joining Danielle on the panel to ask the questions are TOM NEENAN (Spotlight Tonight; The Hauntening), and GRAINNE MAGUIRE (Question Time, The Now Show).

If you need a primer on current affairs, or just want to laugh as the gaps in your knowledge are filled in, Any Stupid Questions? is the podcast for you.
