On episode 279 Nick is joined by fellow super-fan Lottie to discuss
the sketch comedy show I Think You Should Leave (Netflix). We
discuss the politics of the show, focusing on Lefty politics in the
fandom, gender and representation. We also cover some of our
favourite sketches from Season 2, including Cant Drive (our biggest
disagreement in our rankings), Brians Hat (Lotties favourite) and
Gimme Dat (Nicks favourite).
Also covered on the episode is Season 1 versus Season 2 of ITYSL and the Andy Kaufman connection with ITYSL fans. For more on Kaufman check out the movie Man on the Moon and the documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond (Netflix).
