We discuss Tom Hardy’s television passion project and how he produced it with his father and a string of well-known storytellers. We also examine the show’s symbolic demonization of corporations and what that says about historical accuracy and our present understanding of modern economics.

Supercontext: Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, Series 3

This British comedy series is a deconstruction of humor in a jazz-like improvisation. We discuss Lee’s persona, the BBC’s decision-making process and the fine lines between self-absorption, art and masturbation. In fact, we take a masturbation metaphor way too far. So brace yourselves.
