Hours after US President Biden is sworn in we’re giving our hot takes on the important moments of Inauguration Day: the brooch, the coats, and Melania's kaftan. Speaking of fashion, US Vogue has been criticised over its cover image choice of history making VP Kamala Harris. We dig into the discussion around it. And convicted murderer and known abuser Phil Spector has died; we reflect on the “lone genius” myth, and the industry that allows certain men to make others suffer for their art. Meanwhile Myf is relating to childhood spew bowls (!), and we’re banging on about Sapiens and Louis Theroux’s podcast Grounded.
