271: Stopping The Presses For Press On Masterpiece

Wednesday, 9 October

PBS's Masterpiece has premiered the British miniseries Press, a tale of warring London newspapers, and we've brought a former newspaper reporter, Daniel MacEachern, back to the podcast to talk about it! Around The Dial clicks through Evil, Big Mouth, and Cash Cab, before we each pitch our own Fosse/Verdon-style limited series based on a real person's life (and possibly a specific biography). Danny presents The Grinder's "Grinder v. Grinder" for induction into the Canon. Then we're on to naming the week's Winner and Loser, and finishing up with a Game Time that might sound a little familiar. Put down any newspaper you might be reading and listen to us instead!

The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positively Methuselahian. Since the start of EHG, our listeners have asked if we had a tip jar or donation system and we'd look at each other and say surely that is a joke, people don't pay other people to do podcasts. We'd email them back "Ha ha ha, good one, Chet" and go about our business. Now we are told this is a real thing that real nice people do. Value for value? In today's topsy turvy world? It's madness but that good kind of madness, like when you wake up a 3:15am and clean your house. Or something. In all seriousness, we are humbled by your continued prodding to get a Patreon page up for EHG and here it is! Extra Hot Great on Patreon
