Religion In The UK - Episode 219

The UK is not a country that's known for being overtly religious. Indeed, most of British comedy from the past 60 years has derided religion in some form or other and it's easy to see why since England has it's own Church. It's a branch of Christianity, except the Monarch is the head of it and was founded by Henry VIII because the Pope wouldn't grant him a divorce. Mental, isn't it? So, the Church of England was founded and operates basically on the same principles as Catholicism. Listen to our newest episode to find out more!

Do you think there should be a Church Of England?

Emily In Paris... But Set In London? - Episode 217

So, if you haven't been watching Emily in Paris on Amazon Prime, then you haven't been missing too much. It's from the people that brought you Sex and the City and lets be real here, it shows. The whole show relies heavily on stereotypes of the French that are pretty eye-rolling to anyone who has been to France or is actually French. So, this new podcast episode, we decided to think about what stereotypes would be employed if Emily moved to the UK? America has many British stereotypes which would no doubt be employed in a British version of the show.

What are some stereotypes that you would think would be employed of Emily were in London?
