Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
This week’s we have a Bank Holiday edition of London Calling which begins with James and Toby showing an amazing lack of understanding of the US holiday calendar but more than make up for it with a review of the weekend’s Delingpod Live event at London’s Emmanuel Centre.
In the news there’s the coming global famine and whether it’s cock-up or conspiracy, the fact that the Queen is going to be played by a woman of colour in the Platinum Jubilee pageant, whether either of them have ever stumbled across pornography while searching for tractors.
We also cover Biden’s new misinformation tsar, the rehabilitation of Tony Blair, where we were on election night 25 years ago when he won his landslide victory.
In Culture Corner, the anti-capitalist subtext of The Dropout, We Crashed and Super Pumped, and one of the key differences between Breaking Bad and Ozarks (which is that in Breaking Bad Walter White is the super villain, whereas in Ozark its Wendy Bryde.)
Opening sound this week is Tony Blair in a party political for Kier Starmer.
