James and Toby have officially passed the hero stage with their kids and are firmly entrenched as “the embarrassment.” The Delingpole lad thinks James is nothing more than a dancing monkey performing for his Twitter followers, while Toby reveals his daughter has changed her surname to avoid being associated with him.

Meanwhile, there’s the latest news and culture to deal with. Piers Corbyn, brother of the former Labour Leader, was arrested and fined £10,000 for organising an anti-lockdown protest, Adele is accused of cultural appropriation and Toby likes Ted Lasso.

    I haven’t yet listened, but have the initial comment that (at least in America, and I would expect in Britain too) every dad must be an embarrassment to their teenaged children, or dad’s not doing it right. And the teenagers would feel deprived of bragging rights to their peers if dad weren’t an embarrassment when the teens and their peers are comparing notes on whose dad is the biggest embarrassment.

    I’ll look into Ted Lasso which sounds like fun Toby. I usually can’t get the things recommended as I just do dvds instead of the streaming. I know, I know. I’m old.
