The important thing to remember is that it’s still possible to podcast when you have a minor cold. If you’re not ready to believe the text in this brief article, feel free to e-mail John or Zoe or Blakey, who – not even 24 hours ago – attempted and succeeded at that very endeavour to ask them if it’s possible. Under the weather but above average in intelligence, the holy trinity persevered through their ailments to create what may just be the finest example of podcasting known to man. This is the The Killing of a Sacred Deer episode, and though it may be too early to call Eight Wonder of the World, we’re gonna call it anyway. This episode is the Eighth Wonder of the World, just behind the KFC in Colac and ice machines in fridges.

“Dr. Steven Murphy is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon who presides over a spotless household with his wife and two children. Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin, a fatherless teen who insinuates himself into the doctor’s life in gradually unsettling ways. Soon, the full scope of Martin’s intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter his domestic bliss forever.”

As usual, the opinions weren’t unanimous and John was generally right about everything. There was no Derek to peddle anti-Dunkirk sentiment. But to all those Derek fans out there in the world, fear not, for the Old One (at the moment the Old Bearded One) will be back and more bearded than ever for our very next podcast. And that’s a comforting thing, now, isn’t it?
