#216: Platty Jubes, Madonna, Top Gun Maverick


Myf and Zan continue to celebrate Kate Bush’s resurgence into popular consciousness, and rejoice in the discovery of her official website. The iceberg lettuce shortage has us talking leaf, while on the other side of the pond the Platty Jubes is trying to shore up support for the monarchy. Meanwhile the European Union has stepped in to decree that there should only be one charger for all devices (hallelujah), and Julia Garner is set to portray Madonna in a new biopic written and directed by Madge herself. There’s been some other movie news too, some which you may not expect. And we dig in on American sentiment in the turbo Top Gun sequel, and a new documentary on Julian Assange.
