4/5 No Score Yet Rhod Gilbert: Stand Up to Infertility (2021) That's the problem with a lot of men. We don't share problems... Gilbert has some ideas to change all that.

4/5 No Score Yet Rich Hall's Red Menace (2019) Hall's thesis was that the red menace was all sizzle and no steak. Rather, unprecedented US affluence produced anxiety - all those tail-finned Cadillacs and over-sized barbecues might disappear just as quickly as they had appeared. - Guardian EDIT

2/5 50% Inside the Social Network: Facebook's Difficult Year (2019) By rolling over and waving its paws in this way, Horizon abolished critical distance from the global techno-oligarchy with 3.1 billion users and pretensions to ensnare the rest of us. - Guardian EDIT

5/5 100% The Last Survivors (2019) For an hour and a half, I was crying. - Guardian EDIT

4/5 100% David Bowie: Finding Fame (2019) Bowie was, for once, not master manipulator of sound and vision, not virtuoso of a thousand disguises, but something sweeter: unguarded boy with a broken heart. - Guardian EDIT
