Self Checkout

Excuse the nationalistic pride, but James and Toby celebrate Emma Raducanu’s triumph in the U.S. Open Women’s Final but bemoan the way it was immediately politicised. But that gives way to the despair of this government’s Covid policy with passports and vaccines for healthy children.

In Culture Corner Toby watches THE Suicide Squad while James recommends Lovesick on Netflix (which was called Scrotal Recall during its first season run on Channel 4) and the Sussex clan gets bad news on the Emmy front.

This week’s opening sound is of U.S. Open Champion Emma Radacanu courtesy of the US Open/ESPN.

    It was such a treat to wake up this morning and find out that Great Britain has given up on the Vax passports.

    Sure the matter is on hold, but it is a good feeling knowing that the millions out in the street got their point across.

    Love the discussion as usual. One of my favorite podcasts: not too long, friendly disagreement, and, of course, the posh accents.

    The 7th room, eh?

    C. S. Lewis called it the Inner Ring.

    Saint Augustine: The 7th room, eh?

    As I told Toby, I won an Emmy and they don’t even let me out of the basement!
