Episode 105: Bad Education and Battlestar Galactica

In our Emmy Awards round-up episode we mentioned the Hugh Jackman vehicle Bad Education. Here we go into the story of Frank Tassone – and shout-out to Laci Mosley's excellent show Scam Goddess which brought the Roslyn school district scandal to our attention. But like everyone in Melbourne, we are still in lockdown, so instead of risking our lives to go see Tenet, we binged seasons 1 & 2 of Battlestar Galactica.  (Seriously don't risk your life to see a movie, it's not worth it).  Does the show live up to our memories of it? How about the controversial ending to the show, or how it handles politics, religion and paranoia as a genre show in a time before Game of Thrones mainstream plaudits?  Also: we're watching The Boys and Emmet stupidly reread the entire comic run by Ennis and Darrickson in two days Emmet's story 'The Physical Impossibility of British Art' is out Aurealis magazine - issue 135 will feature Emmet's article on Michael Shea.
