James attended this past weekend’s anti-lockdown protests in London with Reclaim mayoral candidate Laurence Fox and managed not to get arrested. But how many people were in attendance is certainly up for debate, and debate is what James and Toby do.
Who is the biggest impediment to getting the adult population of Europe vaccinated? Is it people like our intrepid duo or is it really “leaders” like France’s President Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron?
Before we embark on Culture Corner (Man, we gotta find a better segment title… It’s cheesier than a cheddar trip to Somerset.) James confesses to a little micro-dosing of mushrooms, which may or may not help James through the Arthurian trilogy of… what’s his name? Oh, yeah, Bernard Cornwell.
For your viewing pleasure Toby is recommending Your Honor (Sky Atlantic in the UK, Showtime in the US) starring Bryan Cranston, while James is into Call My Agent (Dix pour cent or “Ten Percent,” available in most countries worldwide on Netflix). We also have the Young family challenge where dad has to watch anime while the son gets a classic western.
Our opening sound this week is from the protests and Laurence Fox chimes in on the duties of the Met.
