After some housekeeping about changes coming down the pipe for us here at the Anywhere But Here Podcast, Ant and Tom have a couple of topics that came up recently they wanted to dissect and discuss.
Firstly Katie (Cunty) Hopkins has resurfaced after a few years to spout some bullshit about the case of Tommy Robinson where she claims some outrageous things about exactly why she thinks he’s been locked up. She’s wrong. Also she makes the claim that ‘Muslim overlords’ running the UK jail system… what exactly does that mean? Ant and Tom delve in.
Secondly they discuss the knee-jerk firing of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn after some right-wing trolls dug up some old tweets of his and posted them without any context. What we learn from this is that people should be allowed to own their mistakes and learn from them, not be fired. Alternatively, you can’t paint over the bits of history you don’t like to sanitise it, bad things happened like British colonialism and the Second World War. Though these eras are morally reprehensible, there’s no questioning that good things came from them, including the ability to never repeat those mistakes.
Oh, and a man kills one of his work colleagues with a compressed air gun while playing a childhood game.

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.
