Since we last met Toby made another trip to Iceland, this time to give a talk at the inaugural meeting of a new free speech society. The post trip discussion on Icelandic cuisine, well, that’s a different story.
The news of the week prompts a question, “Do we need a New Enlightenment to tackle the hijacking of science by woke leftists?” Plus we tackle the Duke of Sussex’s extraordinarily misjudged admission that he killed 25 Taliban fighters, whether the arrest of Andrew Tate is an elaborate psy op, and the riot in the Brazilian capital and what that is likely to be blamed on.
In Culture Corner, The English, Season 2 of Slow Horses, Oblomov (Ivan Goncharov, 1859) and Hell’s March by Taylor Anderson.
This week’s opening sound is Ben McBean, formerly of the Royal Marines, talking with SkyNews on the Duke of Sussex’s relationship with the UK Armed Forces.
