Of course Nigel Farage has a podcast now, and of course it has an utterly ridiculous name
No doubt it will be both fair and balanced.
Actual human being Nigel Farage has decided to move with the times and get into the podcast game with his brand new show Farage Against The Machine.
Yep, that's what it's called.
"But JOE, that doesn't really make sense given how his surname is pronounced!" you cry, only for those valid cries to sink the deep dark all-consuming void.
The former UKIP leader and Brexit enthusiast has found a home on LBC, who promise listeners "a front row seat into an ever-changing political landscape and unprecedented access on Nigel Farage’s journey."
There's also the unique selling point that guests "won't just be people that Nigel agrees with," which is a handy direction given they probably want to make more than five episodes of the thing.
Meanwhile, a Twitter account run by Rage Against the Machine fans reacted to the news with the kind of vitriol you'd associate with Zack de la Rocha's more venomous verses:
Failed right-wing British politician Nigel Farage has called his podcast ‘Farage Against The Machine’
This pissweasel IS the machine - peddling the sort of inane, blame-heavy bullshit that the guys in @RATM have been raging against since day one...#FuckNigelFarage

Farage does have notable history with LBC, specifically the time he was soundly destroyed by James O'Brien:

O'Brien, incidentally, is also a podcaster, and a good one. You can catch up on episodes of his Unfiltered show and enjoy in-depth conversations with the likes of Eric Cantona, Lily Allen, Gary Lineker and Jon Ronson at this here link.
Meanwhile, here's one of RATM's finest anthems to enjoy:
