Mystery on the Rocks
Did Michael Jackson do the Music for Sonic 3?
So a little later than expected...
By us too!
Illness and Christmas and family and bollocks conspire as they always do to stymie any kind of momentum. Not that Christmas and family are in trouble for doing so but illness and bollocks can fuck off quite frankly.
Anyway, our Christmas (more like New Year) Special - recorded on location backstage at the Phoenix Arts Club - is here! Sooz takes the reins and Chris sips a Negroni while Masud sits this one out as we take a look at the (quite frankly compelling) evidence that Michael Jackson composed the music for seminal 1994 videogame Sonic the Hedgehog 3...
Politics & Pizza
An extra episode to (belatedly) kick off 2023.When the Andrew Tate/Greta Thunberg thing kicked off on Twitter, we decided to do an impromptu episode to discuss it, some British political happenings of 2022 and also to do a bit of between-seasons admin we weren't able to do in the previous episode on account of being thrown out (quite, quite rightly) of the Phoenix Arts Club.Unfortunately it was so impromptu that Masud couldn't make it again but he'll be back, we promise!
Season 5 Last Orders
Season 5, Ep. 50
It's here! We did it! YOU did it!Made it through our longest season yet. We take stock of the topics covered and take a moment to reflect on our collective favourite episode of this season - Magnus Hirschfeld and Dora Richter. We discuss how it's a good indicator of whether or not humanity has learned from the history of the 20th Century.We don't think it has!Thanks for sticking with us this season - we're looking forward to sharing some cases of the week again with you very soon!And while we're taking a break between seasons, we're not taking a break over on our Patreon where we'll still be posting mini episodes, bonus episodes. If you can't bear the thought of waiting for Season Six why not head over to our Patreon to see if you fancy going one extra step in supporting the podcast!
Attack on the Capitol
Season 5, Ep. 49
It's (almost) the end...A mammoth trawl through geopolitics, war and espionage brings us to 2021 and an outgoing US President incites an insurrection on the house of government. What led us there, what parallels from history can be drawn and, more interestingly, where could this possibly lead us?We don't get entirely gloomy though, there's also a bit where we all thirst over Denzel Washington.
