James was a bit jealous of Toby’s Covid-19 antibody test results last week, so he went to get his own – and that was after dropping more than a few quid on one just a couple months ago. But the results were so important James interrupted his holiday to share them with us.
After those preliminaries, Toby enthuses about Hamilton (now streaming on Disney+) as the perfect rebuttal to the BLM/Howard Zinn version of American history. However, people who gushed over the show when Lin-Manuel Miranda was performing for President Obama in the White House are now calling the show “problematic.”
Speaking of problematic, your child’s bookshelf is full of them. How long before Roald Dahl is cancelled? That Wonka fellow is really suspect.
Opening sound this week is from BBC Radio One as film critic Ali Plumb talks to the Hamilton creator.
