This week, I prove that, though they don't know it, most Americans have heard the voice of one Magnus Pyke. Then we chat about some conspicuously British Bingo calls, and something in British newspapers called “Spot The Ball.” Then, I read a nice email from my big brother, in which his podcast listening lands him in trouble.
Links to things mentioned: Lenny Henry‘s impression of David Bellamy, the actual David Bellamy, the Thomas Dolby video, Spinal Tap going to 11, the Spot The Ball for all those who want to play too, and oh my, Danny La Rue.

On this week's podcast Tom wants to clear up a few things that he missed out from the story about getting a new job from last week's show. This includes being held up in the bank he works at. Ant tells the story of his weeks, which largely revolves around the death of his pet cat. Both these stories are linked in the fact that grief or shock affect people in different ways.
Zane from One Direction has left the band this week and Jeremy Clarkson was fired from the BBC, which sparks a debate about the complexities of the situation of a talented broadcaster being fired by one corporation yet being allowed to go to another company to be allowed to make the exact same show.
Finally they get geeky and talk about the fact that X-Files has been announced as well as all the episodes of the new Daredevil show are dropping onto Netflix this month. Fox released the first picture of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, which makes Tom very happy. But, is it really Ryan Reynolds?
They end on talking about films such as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel franchise and Tom's partial review of Chappie.

In this this stunningly refreshing programme with writer Daniel Ben Ami, discussion on the economy and elections provides a serious wake up call to all who think the economy is a bore. From the sofa volunteers raise big questions on everything from the minimum wage to oil prices. The inequality debate we learn, is little more than an attack on our freedom and ambition and the differences between political parties are exaggerated. Quantitative easing, Daniel explains, has been the main driver behind growing inequality and involves the redistribution of wealth from the poor to the rich. For all their mansion tax posturing and attempts to paint the conservatives as the ‘fat cats’ party, Labour have not said a word about the immorality or insanity of it. Prospective parliamentary candidates would do well to watch this video and consider how they would answer the big questions a younger generation are keen to put. Media pundits tell us the UK elections in 2015 will rest on the economy but who is standing for serious growth, aspirations, democracy, freedom and an open door? There’s a younger generation and plenty of first time voters rightly expecting inspiration and answers before they’ll cast a vote.
After Scotland’s referendum, the UK holds together-but only just. In Ukraine, anti-EU, pro-Russian movements led to Russian’s annexation of Crimea and the declaration of a ‘people’s republic’ in Donetsk. Yet alongside this regionalism comes increasing supranational integration. The EU is growing in size and power, especially since the Eurozone crisis. The idea of a traditional sovereign nation, making decisions with a well-defined demos, is weakening. Why are established countries struggling to retain loyalty? Filmed at the Battle of Ideas a distinguished panel of speakers provide much food for thought.
This debate filmed at the Battle of Ideas interrogates the backlash against faith schools, which are accused of creating an escape route for privileged parents to avoid the general crisis in education and the goal of diversity in non-selective schools. Should a secular society provide public resources for faith schools? Is admission selection based on religious worship and supporting traditional Enlightenment values of religious tolerance and parental autonomy contradictory?
