Oxford Union Covid-19 Response Update CLICK HERE


A very warm welcome to the Oxford Union, the largest and most famous debating society in the world. We are a unique institution, where some of the world’s most powerful, impressive figures share their most personal stories. Through speaker events, debates, panels and socials, the Union aims to bring something for everyone.

With the recent outbreak of Covid-19, the Union, just like the rest of the world, finds itself dealing with an unprecedented situation, which inevitably brings business as usual to a halt. On behalf of the Trinity Term 2020 Committee, I am proud, and excited to introduce the Oxford Union Podcast Series. From Christopher Plummer and Joanna Lumley to Loretta Lynch, in our termcard you will find leading politicians, actors, journalists, musicians and activists.

Twice a week, we will host debate style roundtable discussions, including a special series on the COVID-19 crisis, topped off with a weekend special every other Sunday.

Each podcast will end with pre-submitted questions from the audience, and I encourage you to look out for the submission form on our Facebook page.

Podcasts will be uploaded to Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts, commencing Monday, 27th April.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch at should you have any questions. I wish you all the very best, and hope that you find the Union to be a place for inspiration, community and respite, in these trying times.

Mahi Joshi, President
