This week our show has a bit of Hitchcockian opening as James recounts his time with Strangers on a Train. That encounter leads us to the recent Dutch study on the effectiveness of masks that seems to have been left homeless - because "science." Nobody will touch it.

With the Presidential election just around the corner everybody gets a call to place their bets, a call that delivers a disturbing memory in Toby's gambling life. And somehow along the way our gentlemen take time to appreciate their wives - and the total indifference they show in their professional lives.

In the kultur portion of our show Toby leads off with Barbarians, a German-Netflix co-production on the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, while James choses To the Lake, an end-of-civilization-due-to-pandemic tale from Russia. (One reviewer called it a very good show at a very bad time.)

This week's opening sound is from To the Lake, courtesy of Netflix.
