On this week’s edition of the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, our men revisit the COVID-19 Panic Scale from last week and find a reversal of circumstances (primarily because James thinks he’s already had it.)

Compared to how other nations have attacked the problem of this pandemic, how is the Prime Minister doing? Has there been a U-turn or just a slight tack in strategy?

And while we’re all cooped up social distancing what’s our best binge watching bets?

    I think James is onto something. … Pardon my Yankee appropriation, but cheerio!

    “…the bit that most worries me is, did you just use the term, ‘NHRS,’ unironically?

    What a complete turnaround from last week when James of all people was predicting the end of the world based on what his expert friends were telling him. Now he’s saying it’s not even that contagious? And the cashier at Costco yesterday wouldn’t even touch my credit card and looked at me like I was an alien come to infect her instead to pick up some frozen waffles and a couple gallons of milk.
