Toby and Nick are back this week to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Trump and DeSantis, Dominic Raab’s tomato hurling, government officials not being able to cope with hurty feelings, FTX and laundering allegations, advertising agencies threatening twitter and how GB News could shield themselves from ideological sabotage/lobbying.  They speak about Dave Chappelle’s SNL controversy, how comedians have become incredibly important again, how uninspiring international football tournaments have become and how unbelievably hypocritical the current crop of prominent England football virtue signallers are being, by agreeing to take a repressive regime like Qatar’s money.  Nick is joined by DailySceptic’s editor, Will Jones, to discuss the past week’s most interesting stories. And of course, this week’s hotly contested crown of Peak Woke goes to… Well, you’ll have to listen to find out…  Please go to https://dailysceptic.org/ and make a donation so we can keep bringing you all this high quality content.  This week's sponsor is Thor Holt and you can find him here: https://www.thorholt.com/ or https://www.linkedin.com/in/thorholt/  or on his telegram channel at @thor­_holt  Nick’s substack: https://nickdixon.substack.com/ Produced by Jason Clift Music by Tinderella

Toby and Nick discuss Matt Hancock being forced to eat a kangaroo scrotum in Australia, how Toby sabotaged his own chances of appearing on I’m a Celebrity, what it would take for Nick to take part, the remainer media trying to force Suella out, whether the word ‘invasion’ is racist and whether Rishi is ok or not. Nick and Toby discuss Elon, the chief twit, and his take on the Paul Pelosi ‘incident’, the savage (and encouraging) sackings at the top level of Twitter and how paying for a blue check mark devalues the concept. They discuss the toxicity of the hard left campaign group ‘Stop Funding Hate’ and the mischaracterisation of their targets, the unbelievable balance and fair play of GB News and an incredibly tone deaf piece in the Atlantic where the author forgives herself for 2 years of hive minded bad judgement and authoritarian behaviour Nick is joined by the Daily Sceptic’s editor, Will Jones, for a rundown of last week’s most interesting stories And lastly Nick and Toby vie for this week’s title of Peak Woke with the usual mad offerings Please go to https://dailysceptic.org/ and make a donation so we can keep bringing you all this high quality content.  This week's sponsor is Thor Holt and you can find him here: https://www.thorholt.com/ or on his telegram channel at @thor­_holt  Nick’s substack: https://nickdixon.substack.com/ Produced by Jason Clift Music by Tinderella   

Tuesday Oct 25, 2022

Toby and Nick discuss how voting for your party leader is old fashioned, Toby’s impotent fury, whether Rishi can withstand the pressure to hold a swift election, are gilt yield levels now in charge, why Kemi and Suella threw Boris under the bus, whether Rishi is still a socialist, JRM abasing himself before getting the boot, Nick’s belated advice to a ‘based’ Jacob, Craig David Karaoke, how our pint size PM might be a role model and how Nick is actually normal height.  They speak about the BBC’s Martine Croxall’s suspension over her predictably partial approach to the news, why Boris triggers so many people, why the puritans still hate the cavaliers, whether Eddie Izzard should be included on an all-woman shortlist (and whether Dick Emery could have run for Labour). Nick and Toby then spend some time discussing pronouns and whether it is, in fact, harmful to perpetuate gender ideology language.  After a brief discussion about Rishi’s new cabinet, Toby and Nick discuss whether Channel 4’s transgender pianist broke the law and why Jerry Sadowitz isn’t allowed to wave his w!lly around.  Nick is joined by the Daily Sceptic’s editor, Will Jones, for a rundown of the past week’s most interesting stories.  And lastly, Peak Woke returns with the usual high quality offerings.

Nick and Toby discuss John Cleese joining GB news (and the ensuing and inevitable left wing meltdown), how the ‘cancelled’ are so much more entertaining than the ‘non-cancelled’, a couple of shameless plugs, Andrew Tate’s new BBC primetime show, Hugo’s magic carpet ride and man of the people, Jay Rayner. They cover how libertarian conservatism is the new punk rock, Stewart Lee’s continuing failure to recognise that he is now part of the establishment, Kanye West’s recent swift rise and abrupt fall, whether white people are ok or not, Mermaids’ spectacular own goal, why people filled with so much bilious hatred so often occupy ‘equality’ positions, why women (and not men) attract hostility – whether it’s from pro mask zealots or road rage and Paypal’s continued decline.
