Congratulations to us. We have a podcast! Last week, due to some technical problems on Toby’s end we lost not one, but two attempts at production. This week we pulled out all the stops, put several redundant systems in place and, of course, none of it was needed. Go figure.
After lamenting that which could have been, we’re on to the matter at hand: Monday was D-Day for the Johnson Government. The Prime Minister has unveiled his roadmap to reopening UK society. Are you getting the jab for a Covid Passport?
Then the soap opera that is When Harry Met Meghan continues with special guest star Oprah Winfrey.
In the Culture Corner, Toby slogs his way through the first two installments of IP Man, the first of which was OK and the second one? Let’s just say President Xi is moonlighting as a screenwriter.
James is recommending ZeroZeroZero (Sky Atlantic, Canal+ and Prime Video) an Italian crime drama.
And lastly, going where no podcast has gone before, a discussion of the works of Bernard Cornwell. (Ok, we’ve been there before…)
This week’s opening sound is the PM announcing his “roadmap” in the House on Monday.
