In Culture […]

After our intrepid duo review Toby’s great success in shooting, the conversation turns to the case of Australian cartoonist Michael Leunig who was dismissed from The Age for comparing resisting mandatory vaccination to the fight for democracy in Tiananmen Square. James and Toby then place a £50 bet on whether […]

So glad to hear you back on speaking terms.

Informative and entertaining

James and Toby provide an entertaining robust discussion about topical issues, primarily about UK politics and culture with a bit of US politics thrown in. Toby’s tendency to wetness balances James’ stridency that comes from being right about everything.
