By Netflix

10/10 (Would Recommend)

Friday, 8 April

Today’s a very special episode as we’re joined by Rowan Deacon, the director of Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story. The two part docuseries looks at TV star Jimmy Savile, who charmed a nation with his eccentricity and philanthropy until sexual abuse allegations exposed a shocking unseen side of his persona. We sit down with Rowan who told us what drew her to the project and what she wants people to take away from the films. She also gave us a fantastic TV recommendation too. The shows mentioned this week include: Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story The Power of the Dog Is It Cake? Each week, join hosts and IRL friends, Tolani Shoneye (of The Receipts podcast fame) and Gena-mour Barrett (who works for Netflix) as they discuss what they’re watching, and what they think *you* should be watching.
