The Crown (season three) – Popcorn Not Included

We show our ignorance of and love for Britain in this extensive discussion of The Crown’s latest season.

When we recorded this episode Queen Elizabeth II was, in fact, 93. Rather irritatingly, she had a birthday since then making us wrong about yet another thing. Don’t come to us for facts about Britain.
