Team James v Team Toby

This week’s episode begins on a sceptical note, namely the lads talking about the live recording of Toby’s “other” podcast (The Weekly Sceptic) at the Emmanuel Centre on Saturday evening. When James organised a live recording of The Delingpod at the same venue, he sold out the 900-seat auditorium, but Tobes only managed to fill the 250-seater. The first question during the Q&A was from a fan who asked how much longer the London Calling can continue, given how acrimonious some of the exchanges between the hosts are getting and how they often seem to be talking past each other.

After we’ve got that out the way, they just about have time to pay tribute to two of their favourite writers, Martin Amis and Jeremy Clarke, who both died at the weekend.

Opening sound this week is the late Jeremy Clarke reading from his column Low Life: Dead cool (September 3, 2016) from The Spectator via Facebook.

    Is this a thread about whether the Moon landing and 9/11 actually happened?

    Really?

    I dunno Charlotte. This way we get every recent conspiracy theory gone over at once. Unfortunately not for once and for all though. You librarians. No fun. Anytime someone starts whispering about a conspiracy theory you tell them to be quiet. A librarian was probably head of the Trilateral Commission. Was Queen Elizabeth really a librarian? Hmmm. (Heh, heh.)

    Apparently. Scary right? I lost a lot of respect for Delingpole. To be clear, the Nixon we sent to China was not the Nixon that came back. I’ve said too much.

    Gosh. I hadn’t even heard of that conspiracy theory. I need to get out in more.
