This week we cover a lot.  We start with two Navy Lark episodes and they won't dissapoint.  The first asks what sub lt Philips is doing selling sweets from a Portsmouth tabaconist aboard Troutbridge and stealing the chief's customers.  The second deals with what happens when a supposed land mine is found in Portsmouth Harbour.  Then we get to the meat of the episode.  Our cosmic quest deals with gGalileo and is titled Seeing Is Believing.  Because of that I thought it'd be fun to look at Galileo by Berthold Brecht.  So we'll listen to The Life Of Galileo.  Enjoy.  Three hours and thirty minutes.  Hey it's a good oone.  On behalf of Maria and myself please have a happy Thanksgiving and if you're in a part of the world where turkeys lives are pardoned then hhave some covid snacks.  Email us at brunchwiththebrits@gmail.com aand most of all enjoy the pod.

Where do vampires go when they're no longer welcome in Transylvania?  You'll find out if you have the courage to get through our normal offerings.  You see to get through the eppisode to reach our terrors, you must first deal with two episodes of Navy Lark.  We'll first see what Toddhunter Brown is up to helping with the independence of the friendly Kawawan nation, then hear what happens when CPO Pertwy is finally discharged.  Frightening right?  In the midst of that we learn about Mathmatics of the sky and the poetry of Omar Kyam.  Then come with us to India and see where the old count has found himself.  This is a nice companion to our Hammer chat I did with Fred Castaneda of podcast reporter fame.  Enjoy.  It's a long one this week.

This week, two coach stories crossed our desk, which we had to share.  The first is from John Lingard, the second from John H Smith of Derbyshire.  Both are quite good and are well deserving of air time.  We begin our regular offerings, with I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again and a tribute from the roaring twenties from 1968 then we learn about stories from the sky in our cosmic quest.  On Troutbridge there's a redundancy drive from October of 1968 and we end with Rumpole and the Show Folk.  Plenty to enjoy so why not settle back whether you're in hot burning California like I am or whether your climes are beginningg a more autumnal routine?  Email us at brunchwiththebrits@gmail.com and as alwaays please enjoy.
