Episode 39 – Social Media – We Love (Hate) It

by | Jul 29, 2023 | 0 comments

It’s Mercury Prize time again! It doesn’t seem ten minutes since we talked about the last competition. We review two documentaries (on Wham, and the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior) and we polish off a book each. Tune in to find out about our good reads. We recommend a couple of Instagram channels, and ElTele spends some time with the early recordings of Pulp.

And to finish we explain our dislike of social media, while relying upon you to spread the word on social media, and starting a Threads account. Dilemma!
