It’s a year since our first episode! We discover some other October 3rd anniversaries. Once again, we have contenders for songs that bring a tear to your eye – what would yours be? Sci-fi, film, music and book nerds should be at home with our Culture Catchup, which includes an album by a famous son of a famous father, more notes on the Taylor Hawkins tribute (LA version), another candidate for England’s finest living electric guitarist, and much more. We discuss also whether true crime TV sometimes goes too far, with particular reference to the content of recent Netflix series.
Our new regular feature Channel Surfing recommends some YouTube and Instagram favourites. Let us know the ones you watch out for each week! The episode rounds out with anecdotes on some of the stars we’ve lost recently, including Coolio and Loretta Lynn, and a mention of Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest TV Programmes, to which we will return in future.
