Podcast: It’s the BRITs. Playground for the idiocracy, or stark reflection of our culture? And mainly should comedy genius Lewis Capaldi replace the failing Whitehall? Robin and Sean watch and learn. Contains diversity.
Podcast: Paris Hilton is in a kitchen, cooking lasagne. #CookingWithParis. Doesn’t sound that great, but it is. Is she desperate? Or is she just out to make an honest sliving? Sean and Robin hail a work of comic genius. Contains onion. No wait, it doesn’t.
Podcast: The heir heads are doing a bunk. Harry and Meghan, #SussexRoyal, want to have their swan cake and eat it – but are they doing it for the gram, or taking one for the firm? Robin and Sean surf the wave of media poison. Contains deference – as always!
Podcast: 2019, the year of rewards for failure! Elon Musk, Greta Thunberg, The Two Ronnies, Theresa May, Bros, Alexa, Prince Andrew, Alan Turing, Dominic Cummings – you name it, they made it. Robin and Sean climb over the stinking debris. Contains New Year honours.
Thanksgiving. A time to reflect on all we have … food, family, friends and football (the one played with hands). I don’t actually watch football (either kind), but lots of Americans watch it on Thanksgiving weekend and it begins with an “f”, so I added it to the list.
Podcast: It’s a jungle out there as MMR goes transatlantic with Sean and Ben in New York and Robin in Brexit Britain. Is there any escape?
