Cryptomaniacs

Lou Pearlman… Bernie Madoff… and now, Sam Bankman-Fried. “SBF” joins a long list of Ponzi scheme artists in modern times and Toby and James open the show with the collapse of FTX and the fall from grace of its 30 year-old founder.

Toby’s just back from Hungary, a nation that he says provides a glimpse of what Britain might look like if our side had won the culture war, why the British Government has no right to ask the taxpayer for even more money (given it’s profligacy in the past two-and-a-half years) and, in Culture Corner, we put a bow on SAS: Rogue Heroes, The Bastard Son and the Devil Himself, Sharpe’s Enemy and Dostoevsky’s The Devils (also known as Demons or The Possessed).

Or do we?

Opening sound this week: Larry David’s prophetic FTX advert produced for Super Bowl LVI.

    You could also start the intro paragraph this way:

    Harvey Weinstein… Jeffrey Epstein… and now, Sam Bankman-Fried. “SBF” joins a long list of disgraced and criminally charged Democrat fundraisers in modern times and Toby and James open the show with the collapse of FTX and the fall from grace of its 30 year-old founder.
