The Easter holiday comes to an end and with it the deprivations of Lent. When will the deprivations of lockdowns go with it?

James is convinced his generation is waving the white flag of surrender for traditional liberal Western values while Toby blames their corruption on the power we’ve handed them. (To understand the forces at play here he recommends Power Broker from the Lockdown Sceptics’ Library.)

It’s hard to argue against them. From efforts to “decolonize” music to the reaction against the government’s Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities Report it can all be very depressing. And the powers of the purse are being used to squash dissent. (Listen to James’ interview with Dr. Mike Yeadon here.)

After the commercial break it’s on to Culture Corner where we touch on The Terror, Season 2 of AppleTV’s alt-NASA series For All Mankind, The Cloverfield Paradox and The Flight Attendant.

Finally the story from our opening sound this week – two cities in two countries that sent their police to break-up church services during the holiest week on the Christian calendar – London vs Calgary.

    I really enjoyed the Israeli series, “Tehran”.
