I love putting my talkRADIO show together - bashing heads with my producer, Holly, to decide what we’re going to cover and why.

In my weekly newsletter - Darryl Morris Weekly - I throw open the doors to our production meeting and let you in what we’re thinking and how we decide what to talk about.

Darryl Morris Weekly – 08.01.21 – The United States of WTF?

Just when we thought it was safe to turn off CNN, the world was glued to rolling US news again as pro-Trump protests descended into domestic terrorism and a storm on the Capitol Building. Still, it was nice to see the CNN hosts again.

Darryl Morris Weekly – 18.12.20 – Freedoms. Again.

We ask ourselves a lot of questions when we’re putting the show together. Should we talk about this? Is this helpful? Is it responsible? Does it make good radio? Is it interesting? Does anybody care? This weekend, we’ve asked ourselves a new one. Do we talk about this too much? This week, the issue

Darryl Morris Weekly – 27.11.20 – Oh Tier, What a Mess

Imagine my excitement today, at finding something new in a story that’s becoming exhaustingly repetitive. I haven’t seen a single newspaper headline, tweet or Facebook status using the pun ‘Oh Tier, What a Mess’. The only thing more tiresome than the COVID measures themselves are the puns. If my single

Darryl Morris Weekly – 14.11.20 – Builders and Destroyers

Dominic Cummings is a destroyer. More politely, a deconstructionist. He takes things he disapproves of and he dismantles them. Britain in Europe, the civil service, the Education system. His path through the civic institutions of Britain can be tracked by the mangled wreckage he leaves behind. And he does so

Darryl Morris Weekly – 30.10.20 – It’s All in the Margins

Where attention would ordinarily be on the last few days of the campaign - the drive to get out the vote and convince that last handful of undecideds - the smarter minds are more focused on what comes next. And they aren’t wondering what TV deal Trump might sign. Coming up

Darryl Morris Weekly – 23.10.20 – Equal Britain?

Sometimes, you have to work hard to find a topical hook for a story you want to do. Other times, they pile up like trucks at the Kent border. Two of the week’s biggest stories have blown open some of the social and economic gaps that still linger over modern Britain,

Darryl Morris Weekly – 17.10.20 – My Favourite Subject

A few years ago, a producer for a popular TV news network called me for an opinion on a story with the reasoning that – said in jest, I think – I ‘always seem happy to harp on about the north being hard done by’. It was a jovial dig

Darryl Morris Weekly – 09.10.20 – What Difference Will It Make?

I bled a radiator this week. Not that I want to pander to toxic gender stereotypes, but I bloody nailed it because I’m a bloody man. We had a problem with the boiler. It started making a disturbing rumbling noise on Monday. After several days of doing what men also

Darryl Morris Weekly – 02.10.20 – Trump Has COVID-19

Get my weekly newsletter in your inbox every Friday – I peel back the curtain on what we have planned for the weekend’s shows on talkRADIO. Subscribe here. Donald Trump contracting COVID-19 is strange news to process. It is not unprecedented. Boris Johnson was, of course, struck down at the

Darryl Morris Weekly – 29.09.20 – The Tussle for Patriotism

In the last decade, patriotism has become an uncomfortable, thorny subject. It has been hijacked by the extremes. Populist political leaders, world over, have used it as a vehicle to carry people on their prejudices. And it has worked. Brilliantly. It's time to reclaim it.
