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.

There’s a reason we don’t usually try and talk current events – the story often changes before we get our episodes out. Irritating. Who needs that?
We recorded this episode weeks ago and talked broadly about the Democratic presidential primary which has changed quite a bit. That’s what we get for trying to talk about politics.
But don’t worry – there’s other junk in here and eventually we get around somehow to Space Jam 2 and Dolph Lundgren. So all is well.
