[Redacted] Pitchforks

James and Toby spend more time on the road than Hope and Crosby but unfortunately it’s not together.

This week we’re all about James’s return to grey old England after his glorious week in Croatia and Toby’s trip to Scotland (in which he fails, spectacularly, to shoot a deer). After the personal preliminaries we touch on the redaction of the emails from Sir Patrick Vallance (the UK’s version of Anthony Fauci) about the Wuhan lab leak, and a discussion of who is more like Jimmy Saville – Toby or James (Hint: Neither one.)

In Culture Corner it’s book week with Purgatory’s Shore by Taylor Anderson and The Young Lions by Irwin Shaw (movie trailer here). Next week: A Bond special.

This week’s opening sound is The Sun Travel Editor Lisa Minot on UK travel changes courtesy of GBNews.
