Wheelhouse of the Victorian Gentleman

Jul 10, 2020, 12:00 AM

More thoroughly irresponsible conversation this week as Phil suggests Formula 1 drivers deliberately drive the wrong way, Jon dares to criticise Wycombe Wanderers, and Chris notates his online chess games by hand.


The main thrust of this week's episode is the relationship between online chess and over-the-board chess, both in the practicalities of each and, more sombrely, the cheating potential of each. Nevertheless, Pierce Brosnan still manages to get savaged while Ennio Morricone is paid a hearty tribute.
