This week’s show covers topics including Rochester Kino’s presentation of Bladerunner which Tom attended, and was packed to the rafters. Tom also saw Alien Covenant this weekend and tries his best to talk about it without spoiling it.
This talk turns to TV shows as Ant has finished Iron Fist and Tom is continuing with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ant also updates us on the goings on in the current series of Dr Who.
Because the pressures of life are piling up both Ant and Tom has started playing simulators rather than high-octane action games. Tom is playing a Tour de France game and Ant is learning to fly with Microsoft Flight Simulator, which begins an in-depth conversation about how hard it is to fly planes.
The UK did really well in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, but still not good enough to get into the top half of the table.
The UK election trail is being hit hard by all parties, but Ant and Tom shy away from getting too involved in politics, though it’s hard not to talk about Trump firing the head of the FBI. Also: Prepare yourself for a second security hack this week, make sure all your devices’ security software is up to date.
Don’t have nightmares.

They’re back! After what feels like a long time off from the show Ant and Tom return to talk about current topical affairs.
The Malaysian Airliner MH370 is still missing, although a ping has been detected, off the West coast of Australia, from what could be the black box recorder (which isn’t black). However the signal will run out in a few days and, even then, it could take years to get it to the surface.
Ant talks about a new phobia; Trypophobia, which is the fear of asymmetrical things, like the Lotus Fruit. Also in technology news is a new breakthrough where Microbial Fuel – or, spit to you and me – is used to power a computer chip, that could be used to analyse the very spit it is powered by!
Tom brings the entertainment news with a heart breaking story where Ed Sheeran sang ‘Little Bird’ to Triona Priestly, a 15-year-old girl who succumbed to her illness just after the performance.
Also, Ant and Tom go on the offensive against bad journalism after a story about 1 Direction’s Harry Styles surfaced this week about him leaving a swanky party with comedian, Jack Whitehall’s, girlfriend, Gemma Chan. ‘Where’s Jack Whitehall?’ the headlines cry. He’s in the fucking picture you twats! Just behind his girlfriend.
They close out with news that people shelling out obscene amounts of money on the new Tesla Model S sports car are voiding the warranty by hacking into the car’s software. The pros and cons of electric cars are discussed in that people like the sound of a loud engine, perhaps an email to Bernie Ecclestone will change things?
