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.

We’re a little late to the party on HBO’s miniseries Chernobyl, but we’ve seen it now and we discuss it away from the initial hype of its release last year. Is it as good as people have said? Is it historically accurate? Does it matter?
