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.
James and Toby start out with their own Brideshead Revisited moment as they look back on their days as students at Oxford before getting into the news of the day, including the introduction of mandatory jabs in Austria, the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, the forthcoming trial of Ghislaine Maxwell and the Prime Minister losing his place in a speech to the Confederation of British Industry.
There’s a lot of quick hits in Culture Corner: taking another look at The Queen’s Gambit (Netflix), the season two finale of The Morning Show (AppleTV+), the awfulness of both The Lost Symbol (Peacock in the US, Sky Max in the UK) and An Audience with Adele (ITV, and not to be confused with Adele: One Night Only, concert and interview with Oprah on CBS/Paramount+), James offers a mea culpa about Midnight Mass (Netflix) and Toby takes on Sharpe’s Revenge.
Opening sound this week is the lost Boris Johnson.
