Introducing... The Fault Line: Bush, Blair and Iraq
6 min

Hi David Tennant Does A Podcast With... fans, we've made a show we think you'll like....


On September 11th 2001, as he faced incalculable losses after the terrorist attacks that day, President George W Bush made a call to his greatest international ally: British Prime Minister Tony Blair. 18 months later, Bush and Blair led a coalition into a war that went horribly wrong. David Dimbleby, one of the BBC’s best known news hosts and reporters, takes us back to those crucial 18 months. Talking to prime ministers, politicians, spies and weapons inspectors he asks how and why we came to invade Iraq. And as we experience an era of lies and mistrust - did the events of 17 years ago set the stage for the world we live in now?


This is a Somethin' Else production.

Natasha Tiku wrote for Gawker in 2013, “Everyone is interested in doing fun things with their bodies. But the impulse to systematize, replicate, package, sell, and build an ideology around it is uniquely Silicon Valley.” She was writing about an organisation that was monetising the female orgasm. And they weren’t the only ones doing so.   Guests: Christine Talbott Acosta, Ruwan Meepagala, Sasha Nelson   Full research sources listed on each episode page at www.ltaspod.com.

In the immortal words of Brian Wilson: "I'm gonna be round my vegetables, I'm gonna chow down my vegetables, I love you most of all... my favorite vegetable" And he's right, too. In this episode we get down in the dirt with our favorite veggies. Carrots... broccoli... and all the rest. All that, and Ceri tries out a fun new pun!

44: Thanksgiving Plans, Trump Kinda Concedes, Movie Release Changes
Just in time for Thanksgiving: Twitter launches FLEETS, Rudy Giuliani melts on live television, and Barack Obama's A Promised Land drops. Taboo word of the week is back! This week's taboo word: Biden. How are we all handling Thanksgiving this year? While the panel tries to plan a safe and enjoyable holiday, we're 👀 at the people who are having large family celebrations. We predict that the closest thing we'll ever get to a concession from Trump is this tweet (https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1331013908971261953?s=20) . What does it mean if the President kinda concedes, but recounts and court challenges are still happening? Trump really is tired of winning: not content with losing Georgia twice, he is requesting a third recount after the state certified its results last Friday. Don't fuck with Detroit: the tale of how a gridlock to certify Wayne County's election results turned into a Zoombombing good time. In happy news, Dr. Fauci confirms that Santa is immune to coronavirus, and can still make the rounds this year! Vaccine check in - are we still feeling cautiously optimistic? Laura's rage of the week: 80% of inmates in Texas county jails who died of coronavirus had not yet been convicted of a crime (https://www.vox.com/2020/11/12/21562278/jails-prisons-texas-covid-19-coronavirus-crime-prisoners-death) , and were in jail simply because they couldn't afford bail. What to say to people who say you're being "too safe" right now: Laura wants to say "fuck 'em," but Huffington Post has some (perhaps) more helpful recommendations (https://www.huffpost.com/entry/what-to-say-too-safe-coronavirus_l_5fb2f0cac5b6a46646700b2c) . Pam reports that some California counties are now on mandatory curfew, prompting us to wonder if covid only comes out after 10 PM? Universal has struck a deal with some major theatrical chains to shorten the theatrical exclusivity window, a win for everyone who prefers watching new movies from the comfort of home. This week's recommendations will keep your feeds clean, your liver busy, and your Christmas lights simple: Tweetbot (Andrew), Gingerbread Murder Scene stout by Pontoon Brewing (Laura), and smart plugs (Pam). This week's episode of #Millennial is sponsored by Rothy's (https://www.rothys.com/mill), EliteMD CBD (https://www.elitemdcbd.com/sleep and enter code REAL20 at checkout for 20% off plus free shipping), and LoveBook (https://www.lovebookonline.com/MILL for 20% off). Support #Millennial by supporting our sponsors! And in this week's installment of After Dark, available on Patreon: Surprise Bitch! victim Natalie fills us in on new parenthood during the pandemic, as well as what it's like to live in a state where it seems like the Governor wants everyone to die (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/23/us/politics/iowa-kim-reynolds-face-masks.html) . Becky reaches out to assuage Laura's fears about potentially getting away to an Airbnb for a change in scenery. Laura is still very paranoid. In preparation for Thanksgiving, we share some of the cringiest stories from around the web about other peoples' dysfunctional family gatherings. May this help prepare you for seeing your own family. Andrew reveals his dad's most haunting moment.
