Episode five of The Yorkshire Post's political podcast sees the two bleary eyed reporters discuss how the dramatic night unfolded and what it means for Yorkshire.

Yorkshire had a pivotal part to play in the election, with Labour's so-called 'red wall' in the north crumbling as voters sided with Boris Johnson and getting Brexit done. The exit poll, released at 10pm on Thursday, was a sign of what was to come, but there was still plenty of drama across the region.
