In our current Level 3 Intermediate course at the British Council Rome, we have been exploring the idea of experimentally changing your job and doing something completely different.
We saw the example of a young girl working as a librarian who was trained, in one month, to become a tough, professional politcal reporter on TV.
To follow up this lesson, I demonstrated the BBC Radio 4 website for the "Today" programme. The "Today" programme, which is broadcast (or which "goes out") every morning on British domestic radio, often carried interviews with politicians. Occasionally these lead to quite heated discussions.
We started watching Lord Ashdown, former head of the Liberal Democrats, giving his views on the future of British involvement in Afghanistan, but did not have time to listen to everything. So I am giving you the link: click here to go straight to the interview with Lord Ashdown.

And do explore the rest of the Today Programme site.
