Episode 48 – Stones, Blades and Bullet Train

by | Oct 21, 2023 | 2 comments

We talk about our couch potato go-to TV programmes. Guilty pleasures? We’re not guilty! ElTele checks out the Jay Blades documentary, and we both review an uncomfortable watch in The Reckoning, the four-part drama about Jimmy Savile, starring Steve Coogan.

The Captain is reading a really good novel that inspired a slightly less good film, and checks out the new Rolling Stones studio album, 18 years after the last one. ElTele pops out to throw a few darts and scores a 140, and we talk about some notable anniversaries.

And we try to explain just what it is about social media that annoys us (but please like, subscribe and share all our podcasts!).
