There’s a search for a fifth meat- and 19 other things podcasts taught us in 2016

Whether its asking what happens when you watch Sexuality and the City 2 more than 50 days or which Oscar has won an Oscar, theres no question a podcast somewhere hasnt answered

1 Richard Ayoade used a ThunderCats duvet cover until he was in his late 20 s

Where we learned it The Adam Buxton podcast

Adam Buxtons life-affirming, jingle-packed ramble chats with his celebrity guests are a constant pleasure. In this two-parter, the multi-talented Ayoade went into everything from the height of pillows to the reaction to his notoriously awkward interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy. As funny as the pod is, you will learn a lot, too from Buxtons honest discussions of heartbreak when his dad succumbed to how upsetting Sara Pascoe sees it when people induce clicky sticky noises with their mouths.

2 One of the biggest auto recalls in history may have been caused by drivers pressing the wrong pedal

Where we learned it Malcolm Gladwells Revisionist History

If you are familiar with Gladwells run, then Revisionist History is both a treat and familiar province. The New Yorker writer often takes assumptions and things we might think to be true and unravels them to end up in a different place altogether. In his bestseller Blink, he explained why it might not have been so unusual that an unarmed man was shot 41 periods by New York police. In the best episode of Revisionist History, Gladwell looked back at Toyotas sudden unintended acceleration phenomenon, which led to a gigantic fine for the car manufacturer. The conclusion when you are listen to a 911 call in which a man is driven to his death by a vehicle that wont slow down was not that the cars accelerators were sticking, but that drivers unfamiliar with certain autoes were having a brain malfunction that entailed the latter are physically unable to differentiate between the brake and the accelerator.

3 One day, everyone in Sweden switched to driving on the opposite side of the road

Where we learned it 99% Invisible

You neednt be an architecture or design fanatic to enjoy Roman Marss gentle unpicking of how the world around us came to look and function as it does. As well as tales about the origins of the inflatable humen they have outside automobile traders in the US, and why they used to publicize missing children on milk cartons, you are able to learn about Hgertrafikomlggningen , or H-day 3 September 1967 when everyone in Sweden switched from driving on the left side of the road to the right.

4 Having your own podcast wont win you an election

Where we learned it With Her

How do we know that Hillary Clinton enjoyed a Cuban sandwich and a brew at the end of a day on the road? Well, she had her own campaign podcast, about the little details of being on the road. In the first episode, Max Linsky, of the podcast Longform, talked to her in Miami about what she was going to have for dinner that evening. As the first presidential nominee to have a campaign podcast, Clinton tried to harness the power of the medium to proves a more personable side of herself. Suffice to say, it didnthave the desired effect.

5 Theres more than one way of motivating your sales force

Where we learned it My Dad Wrote a Porno

Pots-and-pans sales supremo Belinda Blumenthal can find lust in any situation even when she is lost in an ornamental labyrinth. The superstar of the erotic fiction written by comedian Jamie Mortons father has taught the world that a regional marketings conference has just as much possibilities for naked fun as a business trip-up to Amsterdam. Other things she has appropriated into her libidinous realm include a charity tombola, Herb Alpert, a chalet, a pomegranate, a horsebox and any sentence involving the words further access. What she has taught listeners about her ridiculously sexy life may be unsavoury, but via Mortons podcast it has brought a whole lot of mirth.

6 Sacha Baron Cohen has been known to use a getaway car

Where we learned it WTF

Marc Marons WTF can be off-putting: the hosts 15 -minute opening monologue and guitar jams are often enough to deter new listeners. But when it comes to teasing out colorful details from the careers of some of Hollywoods funniest and finest, Maron is the master. Grimsby may have bombed in the cinema, but it was worth it for the interview Baron Cohen did with Maron to promote the cinema. The best bits were the details of the logistical difficulties of attaining Brno, from how a redneck battle crowd were deceived into watching a homoerotic romp to how Baron Cohen managed to escape Kansas police after being caught with, among other things, a pedal-powered sexuality machine in a hotel room.( He had a auto waiting outside with the engine running .)

7 Having two vaginas doesnt mean you can have vaginal sex with two men at the same time

Where we learned it Close Encounters from the Guardian

Alix Fox pries into the complicated and fascinating lives of people for whom sex is not always entirely straightforward, from a polyamorous couple to a human paralysed from the waist down just before his honeymoon. An extraordinary interview with double-barrelled Hazel, who talked openly about the effects her condition has had on her and may have on her if she wants to have children is the standout so far.

8 The search for a fifth meat continues

Where we learned it The Beef and Dairy Network podcast

The centuries-old assumption that there are only four meats beef, lamb, pork and chicken is crumbling after unconfirmed reports that the European Space Agency has identified a mysterious fifth meat. The Beef and Dairy Network podcast, produced by comedian Ben Partridge, is the No 1 podcast for those involved or only interested in the production of beef animals and dairy herds. Featuring guest appearances from agricultural experts such as Josie Long, and attracting fans including Miranda Sawyer, it is a surreal beefstravaganza.

9 John Oliver is not dead

Where we learned it The Bugle

For a decade, long-time comedy partners John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman set the world to rights via the medium of their audio newspaper for a visual world. Their riffs on anything from civil liberties( Like puppies, John, we love our own, but we get genuinely vexed when other peoples civil liberty keep shitting on our lawns) to Texas barbecues( All I know is this, Andy: if I was a cow, and I knew that I could savor like that, Id find it very hard to make a coherent example for not being immediately killed and slow-cooked) often attained the indicate the funniest thing you could get on Wi-Fi. With Oliver having left the Daily Show to front his own display on HBO, the Bugle went into satirical hibernation. It awoke in mid-October, just in time for a political event so ridiculous that even Zaltzman at his most surreal couldnt have imagined it. The pods Have I Got News for You-style rotating guest co-hosts now include US comics Wyatt Cenac and Hari Kondabolu, as well as Brit Nish Kumar and brilliant Indian standup Anuvab Pal. They dont know each other as well as best friends Zaltzman and Oliver, but perhaps the other co-host, Andys sister Helen, could claim an advantage on that front. The Bugle is dead, long live the Bugle.

10 A bloke operating a driving school in Acton, west London, was also helping to prop up the death penalty in the US

Where we learned it More Perfect

In a residential area of west London, inside a house with a banner that reads Elgone Driving Academy, is a guy in his 50 s who seems a bit like William Hurt and who was the one-man operation helping to provide the narcotics used for capital punishment in the US. That was until a human rights charity alerted the UK government to his pharmaceutical broom closet of death. In the inaugural episode of More Perfect, a Radiolab spin-off looking at how US supreme court cases affect lives miles away from the bench, the presenters explored those three little terms from the American constitution: cruel and unusual.

11 The political insiders word for people panicking about a Trump win was bedwetters

Where we learned it Keepin it 1600

A politics podcast hosted by Barack Obamas former speechwriter and a senior communications consultant ought to scream wonkishness, but Jon Favreau and Dan Pfeiffer may be the two most engaging analysts of a bonkers election campaign. Having been at the heart of two US election blizzards, they alongside other hosts Jon Lovett and Tommy Vietor know, inside-out, how this world runs and share it. Their near certainty about a Clinton win up to the morning of general elections induced 1600 one of the most reassuring political podcasts you could listen to and construct their morning-after mea culpa on 9 November all the more extraordinary. Now its actually time to wet the bed.

12 Billy Joel has really soft hands

Where we learned it Two Dope Queens

Comedians and co-podcast hosts Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams went where two black women have never gone before a Billy Joel concert. They sneaked in their ros in suntan lotion bottles bought on Amazon the kind that get white daughters, watching the Shins, through Coachella. And, having been given front-row tickets because Billy likes to see fairly girls up at the front, they got to shake his baby-soft hands.

13 Tar heroin reeks just like capers

Where we learned it Guys We Fucked

Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson host the anti-slut-shaming podcast, featuring interviews with everyone from Jon Ronson to Stoya( and, as the title gently suggests, people with whom they have had sex ). Their interview with Wendi Kent or, as they call her, White Precious who photographs protesters outside abortion clinics, exposed the same reasons she can no longer feed capers and what its like to have sex when youre homeless. But its not all heavy-going. The episode titles alone are a treat good luck disguising You didnt go to France because you wanted to masturbate ?, His pubes were haunted? and Period sex: supposes? from fellow commuters.

14 You can watch Sex and the City 2 too many times

Where we learned it The Worst Idea of All Time

A lot of time, effort and fund, especially money, went into making this film, says Guy Montgomery. Weve just opened up the most disgusting can of worms. Theres no need to watch SatC2 because he and Tim Batt have done it more than 50 times for the sake of their podcast( they did the same with Grown Ups 2 ). Mirandas nanny Magda is a spy who is gradually poisoning her, Charlotte is the other one and the whole thing is crying out for the kind of dialogue that attained the Tv series great.

Where we learned it Slates Serial Spoiler Specials

Slates week-by-week analysis of Serial, 2014 s podcast preoccupation, is perfect for when everyone you know is listening far too slowly offering story recaps, whodunnit hypothesis and critiques of the host, Sarah Koenig. Not to mention digging deep down into Reddit rabbit pits about the two cases encompassed so far.

16 Moby is a CD thief

Where we learned it Heavyweight

Jonathan Goldsteins Heavyweight aims to the tell the stories of people whose lives have taken a wrong turn somewhere. One of these was to reunited his 80 -year-old father with his elder friend before it was too late. Another was to reunite his friend Gregor who is haunted by the moment he loaned a box of Cds to a techno-producer friend. The friend, was, of course, Moby, who utilized many of them as the basis for his squillion-selling Play. Gregor doesnt want royalties he only wants his Cds back. And Goldstein helps him get them.

17 You can have an -Alist cast in a podcast drama

Where we learned it Homecoming

Although Serial was essentially a piece of investigative journalism, its format have also shown that podcasting didnt need to be limited in its sort. Gimlet Media, functional specialists podcasting company, emerged around the same period as that NPR made and proved its aspirations in the field. Its scripted drama, Homecoming, aimed straight for the stars with a cast including Catherine Keener, Star Wars Oscar Isaac and David Schwimmer. The story flips between Keeners characters work at an experimental facility that helps soldiers integrate back in local communities and her present-day life as a waitress. There are plenty of cliffhangers helping to tell the story of what happened in between.

Other lessons from this podcast You dont mess with David Schwimmer. As Colin Belfast, he oozes fury and has the air of a human on the edge. HV

Where we learned it Answer Me This !

Helen Zaltzman and Olly Mann( plus Martin the soundman) solve listeners queries on a fortnightly basis with questions ranging from the practical to the ethical to the ridiculous. Suffice to say, you will learn more listening to them while doing the washing up than from Heart FM. You will also learn that drunken voicemails are welcome, especially from Dave from Smethwick and Graham from Canada.( Its Oscar Hammerstein II, by the route .) LH

2017: the year in pop culture

A month-by-month digest of 2017s most memorable moments, from Trumps not-so-triumphant inauguration to Get Out resuscitating the horror genre, Love Islands surprise success and beyond

January

Trump’s inauguration

The year began with nobody RSVPing to Donald Trump’s inauguration invite. After reaching the end of his Rolodex, he eventually got 3 Doors Down to perform- so, crisis over.

Accepting her 8,000 th Golden Globe, <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jan/09/meryl-streep-donald-trump-feud-golden-globes"> she stood up against the yet-to-be-inaugurated Donald Trump</a>and his mockery of disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski, and the audience stood up in approval.</p> <p>The tone was defined. For the rest of awards season, winners seemed out of place if they weren’t constructing some sort of political statement, and- in the unfolding Trump era- there were plenty of options: the Muslim ban; the border wall; LGBTQ, racial and gender discrimination.</p> <p>Things turned a different shade of bonkers at the <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/jan/29/sag-awards-2017-hidden-figures-stranger-things-political-speeches">SAG awardings</a>, when David Harbour’s barnstorming speech for Stranger Things (” We will shelter freaks and outcasts … We will get past the lies. We will hunt monsters !”) was undercut by the manic facial contortions of Winona Ryder standing next to him- confounded, astonished, defiant, suspicious, everything-at-the-same-time. Nobody realised she’d stayed in character as Joyce Byers between seasons.</p> <p>Not even the wizened Adele could stick to the programme. At the Grammys she had her own mini-meltdown, starting her tribute to <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/feb/12/adele-george-michael-tribute-grammys">George Michael</a> off-key( talking here a careless whispering ), then stopping the music, apologising for” fucking this up”, apologising for swearing, then apologising for starting again.</p> <p>Then the Oscars the appropriately disastrous finale, with Warren Beatty handing the biggest award of the night to the incorrect movie. It was a plot twisting, or rather a plot loss, that no one insured coming- least of all Team La La Land, who were still going through their thank-yous as bewildered Team Moonlight took the stage. The painfully prolonged shambles uncovered just how bad improvisational skills are in Hollywood. Sticking to the programme has never seemed so appealing. <strong> <em> SR </em> </strong> </p> <h2>The Nightly Show: five reasons ITV’s attempt at news satire didn’t work</h2> <figure id="img-3"> <a href="#img-3" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="Gordon" /><figcaption class="caption"> Nice gag … Gordon Ramsay. </figcaption><p> <strong> 1 </strong> Chatshows are notorious for squint-inducing defines- portion lap-dancing nightspot, portion suburban soft play.

Photograph: Allstar/ Blumhouse Productions </figcaption><p>With so many film sectors having a terrible year- big-budget blockbusters, comedies, sci-fi, reboots , non-reboots- horror pretty much saved the box office. How did it do this? By an obscure, mystic process known as” constructing movies that do not suck “. </p> <p>If there’s an emblematic horror movie of 2017, it would have to be <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/dec/20/the-50-top-films-of-2017-in-the-us-no-3-get-out">Get Out</a>. It was accessible and arousing but also fresh and political, giving the good old they’re-all-out-to-get-me scenario a contemporary shot of racial paranoia. In a year that gave us Charlottesville and Colin Kaepernick, it felt right. But despite the States’s widening divisions, audiences had no problem identifying with a black human surrounded by creepy racists. Let’s not forget that Get Out only became possible in our current epoch- when an African-American film-maker( Jordan Peele) was at last entrusted with a mainstream horror movie.</p> <p>It didn’t stop there, though. There were quality horrors across the board. We got huge makes such as It( which doubtless benefited from the Stranger Things effect ), <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/sep/27/split-review-james-mcavoy-m-night-shyamalan-fantastic-fest-austin">Split</a>( with its all-star cast of James McAvoy, James McAvoy, James McAvoy and James McAvoy ), and Annabelle: Creation( admittedly a textbook franchise horror ). In the alternative margins were interesting new directions such as <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/aug/10/a-ghost-story-review-rooney-mara-casey-affleck-david-lowery">A Ghost Story</a>and <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/jun/08/it-comes-at-night-review-dystopia">It Comes at Night</a>. European cinema gave us the likes of <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/mar/16/personal-shopper-review-kristen-stewart-olivier-assayas">Personal Shopper</a>, <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/apr/09/raw-julia-ducournau-cannibal-fantasy-review-kermode">Raw</a> and <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/nov/02/thelma-review-joachim-trier-telekenetic-lesbian-psychological-drama">Thelma</a>. The horrors that really bombed were autopilot duds such as Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness, Jigsaw( AKA Saw VIII) and Tom Cruise’s overblown The Mummy- which forgot it was supposed to be a horror movie at all. In other terms, movies that sucked.</p> <p>If 2017 is a horror high point, though, it could well be downhill from here in 2018. As studios sift through the wreckage of their failings, they might start asking why they expended PS130m on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword when Get Out made more money( more than PS190m worldwide) on a budget of PS3. 3m. Numbers like that are hard to ignore, but horror has a nasty habit of sequelising and cannibalising its best ideas to demise. Next year we could be facing a horror glut. Be afraid. Be very afraid. <strong> <em> SR </em> </strong> </p> <h2>Galway Girl: deconstructing one of the year’s most divisive singles</h2> <figure id="img-5"> <a href="#img-5" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="Michael" /><figcaption class="caption"> Michael Flatley+ tin whistle+ Jim Corr+ fiddle- The Cranberries= Galway Girl by Ed Sheeran. </figcaption><figure class="element"> <iframe class="fenced" srcdoc="var" localurlvar='https://bookshop.theguardian.com/his-bloody-project.html'<title>. icon width: 36 px; height: 36 px; display: inline-block; vertical-align: middle; svg fill: #FFF ; . left-rule: before,. right-rule: before content: ”; float: left; thicknes: 43%; height: 1px; border-top: 1px dotted #bdbdbd; margin-top: 12 px . right-rule: before content: ”; float: right svg display: block; margin: auto p margin: 0px </p> <div class="bookshop-button-wrapper" id="wrapper"> </div> <p> “> </p> <h2> <strong> April </strong> </h2> <h2>One Direction: their solo careers assessed</h2> <figure id="img-6"> <a href="#img-6" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="Louis" /><figcaption class="caption"> One-upmanship … <em>( from left) </em> Louis Tomlinson: no direction; Zayn Malik: ex-directory; Harry Styles: direct debit; Niall Horan: direct line; Liam Payne: directional derivative.

From Niall’s nan-friendly folk, to Liam’s pop pillaging, here’s the direction the chaps went in next.</p> <p> <strong>‘ Ed Sheeran, but twangier’<br /> </strong> Zayn continued his endearing knack for mimicry, swapping the Weeknd of Pillowtalk for the Sia of Dusk Till Dawn( featuring Sia ). Also striding through the Stars in Their Eyes dry ice was Harry, who went to LA and is coming as a silk-suited hybrid of Mick Jagger and Green Man-era Mark Owen. The genre roulette wheel stopped at” Ed Sheeran, but twangier” for cosy knitwear fan Niall Horan, whose album Flicker looked like Fucker when written in capitals. Bear Payne’s dad Liam, meanwhile, regenerated as Justin Timberlake-lite, while poor Louis failed to be the main act on his own singles.</p> <p> <strong>‘ Unnervingly normal’<br /> </strong> With Zayn’s moodiness cemented by fancy covers on fancy style publications, it was up to everyone else to play repositioning catch-up. <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/global/2017/jun/25/louis-tomlinson-one-direction-solo-album">Louis appeared in the Observer</a> and on the Noisey website applying his apparent uselessness as a selling tactic, while Niall was described as” unnervingly normal” in his Sunday Times Culture feature. For Liam, his change away from his boyband past involved the covering of the Telegraph magazine and a ludicrous amount of blue steel sulk. The real repositioning prize, however, was saved for Harry, who appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone in an elegantly preposterous profile written by Cameron Crowe.</p> <p> <strong>‘ Unsexy sex romp’<br /> </strong> Zayn started the year cosying up with girlfriend <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/shortcuts/2017/feb/10/gigi-hadids-zayn-malik-white-bandana-political-statement-or-fashion-accessory">Gigi Hadid’s</a> bessie mate( and Harry’s ex) Taylor Swift in unsexy sexuality romp I Don’t Wanna Live Forever. Louis sang a couple of words near a mic being held by Bebe Rexha on Back to You, while Liam appeared on a Zedd song and danced weirdly near a non-plussed Quavo on debut solo single, Strip That Down. Niall is friends with everyone, the sweetheart, while Harry get Stevie Nicks- the mother lode for any authenticity-seeking serious musician- to appear on stage with him in LA.</p> <p> <strong>‘ Styled by Gap’<br /> </strong> Since his departure, Zayn’s had a US and UK No 1 album and single, plus two other UK Top 5 hits. Liam’s Strip That Down was Top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic, Louis had some success at home but constructed little dent in the US, while Harry’s Sign of the Times topped the charts in the UK and his self-titled album did the double( ie it was a US and UK chart-topper, do keep up ). But it’s sweet Niall and his” styled by Gap” acoustic ditties that could be the real long-term success narrative; he’s had two UK Top 10 s, topped the US Adult Top 40 chart in America with the actually very good Slow Hands and merely missed out on a UK No 1 album to fellow ex-boybander George Michael. As the saying goes, it’s always the quiet ones lumbered with braces early on who come good in the end. <strong> <em> MC </em> </strong> </p> <h2>Nicole Kidman: why the actor had a bonza year</h2> <figure id="img-7"> <a href="#img-7" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="The" /><figcaption class="caption"> Yes, she Cannes … <em>( from left) </em> The Beguiled; Big Little Lies; Top of the Lake; at the Oscars; The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

An effort to protect expensive rings, on loan from Harry Winston, apparently.</p> <p>Then onwards to the Cote d’Azur in May, where Kidman was dubbed Queen of Cannes before her private plane had even touched down. Her four entries in the festival’s official selection would have ensured she stood head and shoulders above other Hollywood -Alisters, even if, at 5ft 11 in, she didn’t also literally tower above most. Both Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled and Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Killing of a Sacred Deer paired her winningly with Colin Farrell, with Kidman adding a cool grandeur to his unpredictable febrility.</p> <p>On television, Kidman’s performance in <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2017/dec/13/the-50-best-tv-shows-of-2017-no-5-big-little-lies">Big Little Lies</a>( which she also co-produced) won her an Emmy, kudo for revealing current realities of domestic violence and, in co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley, a ready-made squad to rival that of fellow willowy blonde, Taylor Swift. But perhaps Jane Campion’s second series of <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2017/aug/31/top-of-the-lake-china-girl-finale-recap-uneven-and-bizarre-to-the-bitter-end">Top of the Lake</a> offered Kidman her most intriguing role of the year. As she revealed in interviews, playing Julia allowed for some oblique exploration of her own experiences of motherhood, adoption and surrogacy.</p> <p>Does it add to Kidman’s satisfaction that while her career runs from strength to strength, ex-husband Tom Cruise goes from flop to embarrassing flop? <br />If so, she’s far too evolved to let on. <strong> <em> EEJ </em> </strong> </p> <h2>Pepsi-gate: how the’ influencers’ stopped get likes</h2> <figure id="img-8"> <a href="#img-8" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="Kendall" /><figcaption class="caption"> Coke bloat … Kendall Jenner brings peace. </figcaption><p>Ah, to be an “influencer”, paid bajillions of dollars to promote everything from makeup to flat belly teas to an audience of pleb. It all seemed so attractive- until 2017 came along to destabilise the world’s superstar selfie-takers.</p> <p>First up, Kendall Jenner- the eldest of Kris Jenner’s non-Kardashian brood- who was the starring of a <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/lostinshowbiz/2017/sep/07/kendall-jenner-pepsi-moment-kardashians">tone-deaf Pepsi campaign</a>. In it, Jenner successfully diffuses police-protester relations at a Black Lives Matter-style protest by dedicating a police officer a fizzy drinking. If merely it were all that simple, Kendall! She and sister Kylie also launched- and then pulled- a <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jun/30/kylie-kendall-jenners-t-shirt-celebrity-instagram-fame-not-cultural-icons">controversial T-shirt line</a> that featured images of their faces superimposed on to unlicensed photographs of the likes of Biggie and Tupac.</p> <p>Also perfecting her saccharine apologies this year was pal Gigi Hadid, who claimed to have” the utmost respect and love for the people of China” after a video circulated online of her squinting next to a biscuit shaped like a Buddha in February. Then in July, she and boyfriend Zayn Malik were the subjects of a much-ridiculed Vogue cover that claimed the androgynously garmented pair were” gender fluid “. Sister Bella Hadid was also ridiculed in October when a video of her chatting about trainers in an approximation of black slang spawned thousands of “homeboy” memes.</p> <p>But, above all these examples of questionable influencer behaviour, two stand out. Video-maker PewDiePie lost contracts <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/feb/13/pewdiepie-youtube-star-disney-antisemitic-videos">with YouTube and Disney</a> after posting antisemitic videos, subsequently describing himself as a” rookie comedian” in something of a non-apology. Elsewhere, Ja Rule’s Fyre festival- promoted by the likes of, yes, you guessed it, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner- <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2017/apr/28/bahamas-drama-luxury-fyre-festival-turns-into-chaos">tanked</a> when festival-goers arrived at their “luxury” experience in the Bahamas to find disaster relief tents and cheese sandwiches.

Photo: AP </figcaption><p>Following on from the likes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Broad City, 2017 was the year that TV took a swipe at dating app culture in wry, realistic style. The second series of Issa Rae’s dramedy <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2017/sep/16/insecure-yvonne-orji-33-years-old-virgin">Insecure</a> opened with one such scene. Fictional Issa is sat with her ex in a restaurant. Except that he isn’t there. As the camera pans back from Issa to her date, we find a total stranger. And then another. And then another. She’s on a string of unsuccessful dates, answering the same tired questions from men she’s met on Tinder, Hinge and Bumble. Frustrated, she does some trademark rapping in the toilet (” My ex won’t take me back/ So my broken ass is here, small-talking over apps “), before accidentally spilling a drink over one of her suitors.</p> <p>Elsewhere, Aziz Ansari’s <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2017/may/15/master-of-none-season-two-review-aziz-ansari-italy">Master of None</a> offered the male perspective of the “revolving door” scenario in the episode titled First Date. Like Issa, Dev( Ansari) is on a series of dates, which- over the course of a 30 -minute episode- are spliced with one another as we confront awkwardness, fleeting connects and even racism, as Dev discovers a blackface “mammy” -style jar one date keeps her condoms in. It also emphasises the gamified nature of apps, with Dev firing off the same witty opener (” I’m going to Whole Foods, want me to picking you up anything ?”) to two more matches at the end of the episode.</p> <p>And so, both proves succeeded in presenting the anonymous, restless and often shallow nature of post-Tinder dating, while remaining sympathetic to the people caught in its hold- and, perhaps, making audiences think twice about their own swiping etiquette. <strong> <em> HJD </em> </strong> </p> <figure class="element"> <iframe class="fenced" srcdoc="var" localurlvar='https://bookshop.theguardian.com/his-bloody-project.html'<title>. icon width: 36 px; height: 36 px; display: inline-block; vertical-align: middle; svg fill: #FFF ; . left-rule: before,. right-rule: before content: ”; float: left; width: 43%; height: 1px; border-top: 1px dotted #bdbdbd; margin-top: 12 px . right-rule: before content: ”; float: right svg showing: block; margin: automobile p margin: 0px </p> <div class="bookshop-button-wrapper" id="wrapper"> </div> <p> “> </p> <h2> <strong> June </strong> </h2> <h2>Oh, Jeremy Corbyn: how woke was pop? </h2> <figure id="img-10"> <a href="#img-10" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="Chants" /><figcaption class="caption"> Chants encounter … the crowd at Glastonbury.

The script theyd just heard had Elaine, George and Jerry doing nothing except waiting for a table at a Chinese eatery. There was no action beyond a pay phone call and an attempt to bribe the maitre d. The pair had championed many of the displays stranger moments, but now they were considering shutting it down.</p> <p>Theyd been worried about the script from the get-go. Was this thing missing pages or something? There was no tale! What would the other NBC executives say? To Bosgang, it corroborated the networks worst anxieties about Larry David and Seinfeld that they couldnt hack it making a sitcom long-term. They didnt think they could sell a concept this flimsy. Theyd gone to the table-read in hopes of find advance but thered been no change. Now they sat in Bosgangs automobile and agreed that killing the script was too provocative. David, especially, would not take this lightly. But they also knew how precarious Seinfelds future was. They had to say something. </p> <p>Indeed, David balked even when Ludwin told gingerly If you feel passionate about this, which you plainly do, run do it, and well hope for the best. He took David for a walk around the plenty and allowed him to ventilate. David was adamant it was a funny half-hour of television about lifes little annoyances. It was Seinfeld. If the network didnt like this, they didnt like the show.</p> <p>In fact, the script mystified even the man who played the Chinese restaurant host. Actor James Hong conveyed his embarrassment. The director Tom Cherones ensure it as similar to his own early feelings about the show. That doesnt matter, he told Hong. Just go with it.</p> <figure id="img-1"> <a href="#img-1" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="There" /><figcaption class="caption"> Way too flimsy a concept? the Chinese Restaurant episode. Photo: Seinfeld </figcaption><p>The episode did not go down well with Ludwin and Bosgangs colleagues, but no one stop saying that from airing. And when it work, critics understood what NBC did not. Like real life, but with better dialogue, wrote Kit Boss in the Seattle Times. Seinfeld doesnt feel like sitcom television, New York publications Chris Smith told. It feels more like a dialogue with your funniest friends. Over period, the episode would stand as a turning point for the series and a groundbreaking bit of television.</p> <p>Everyone won: individual producers induced the prove they wanted, and the network looked good for airing it. In fact, the Chinese Restaurant showed that a sitcom could tackle more highfalutin qualities than had ever been attempted before: this was TVs version of <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/aug/10/waiting-for-godot-book-that-changed-me-nicolas-lezard">Samuel Becketts Waiting for Godot</a>.</p> <h2>The Junior Mint</h2> <figure id="img-2"> <a href="#img-2" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="They" /><figcaption class="caption"> They let some amateur in and he came up with this stupid, unsterile tale the Junior Mint. Photo: NBC via Getty </figcaption><p>Andy Robin got his first Seinfeld script assignment in the fourth season, when he was already a fan. He felt a kinship with David and Seinfeld. Although he was in his 20 s, he loved stuff from the 50 s and 60 s, smooth crooners like Johnny Mathis and Petula Clark. He knew he could throw some Burl Ives into a Seinfeld script and Larry and Jerry would get it.</p> <p>He had been editor of the Harvard Lampoon and worked as a writer at Saturday Night Live. When he got the call from the Seinfeld office, he knew hed stumbled on something big and felt a major responsibility to keep the depict great. How would he maintain that quality? Or would he be the one to ruin it? </p> <p>Now he couldnt write a thing without ripping it apart. His desperation led to some bizarre pitches , none more than the one that became his first episode, The Junior Mint.</p> <p>He had some reasonable plots lined up: Jerry dates a woman whose name he cant remember; Elaine visits an old artist boyfriend in hospital to rekindle their romance when she sees hes lost a lot of weight; George buys a piece of art by Elaines paramour in case he dies in surgery and the value shoots up. Tying them all together was the tough component, out of which went one of the reveals first memorably absurd moments: when Jerry and Kramer find the artists surgery from the gallery above while they snack on Junior Mints, merely to fell one into the open body cavity below. </p> <figure class="element"><figcaption class="caption"> The Junior Mint. </figcaption></figure> <p>Robin was happier at Seinfeld than hed been at Saturday Night Live. SNL was a astonishingly corporate environment; all anyone talked about were ratings. Everything felt overly cautious and full of fiefdoms. People who had been there for decades were protective of their power. </p> <p>He was happy to have escaped. But now hed wrecked his career, and perhaps the whole show, with this dumb Junior Mint plotline. Robin couldnt believe David approved it; this was crazy. People would say, They let some amateur in and he came up with this stupid, unsterile-hospital-environment story.</p> <p>He called David mid-draft and said, This cant happen. </p> <p>Davids reply: Simply write it. </p> <p>When Robin finished, he was proud of one proportion: the storyline in which Jerry forgets the name of the woman he was dating. He tries to find out his girlfriends name through acts of subterfuge, like excavating in her purse. She mentions that her name rhymes with a female body part. Exasperated, he guesses: is it Mulva? Bovary? No, but she realises: You dont know my name, do you? </p> <p>Jerry eventually figures it out when she leaves in a huff, and he screams his final guess after her: Dolores. Could this have been the first network-television acknowledgment of the clitoris? It seems likely. Cloris was the scripted choice for her real name, but when the warm-up comedian asked the studio audience to guess her name, person told Dolores. David and Seinfeld decided it was better and subbed it in at the last minute. </p> <p>Director Tom Cherones liked Robins Junior Mint script more than its author did. He always enjoyed Seinfelds weirder challenges, like the climactic autumn of a piece of candy into a body mid-surgery. The small chocolate disk wouldnt show up on camera in flight, so he shot a York Peppermint Pattie about four times the size instead. Spectators wouldnt be able to tell the difference without other objects in the shot for comparison.</p> <p>Robin was shocked no one complained. The audience at the videotapeing laughed, but when he saw the edit he still hated it. Finally, it aired. The public rebellion he expected did not happen, but he was still convinced hed ruined the display. It wasnt up to his expectations of himself or Seinfeld.</p> <p>In fact, Seinfeld himself cited the episode as a milestone: if it could pull this off, it could do no wrong. Anything was game. Even Jerrys character reached a new level of darkness in this particular script. As Kramer begs Jerry to join him in the surgical gallery, Jerry sighs, All right, all right. Just let me finish my coffee, then well run watch them slice this fat bastard up. Seinfelds face can scarcely contain the hilarity at getting away with this line.</p> <p>After the episode, Robin could scarcely function, so cowed was he by the pressure of working on Seinfeld. He often started a script, then scrapped it two-thirds of the route through when it didnt click. And the acclaim for The Junior Mint merely induced matters worse there was so much pressure to top his first try. </p> <h2>The Contest</h2> <figure id="img-3"> <a href="#img-3" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="Master" /><figcaption class="caption"> Masters of their domain The Contest. Photo: Seinfeld </figcaption><p>After each raucous table-read, David held tribunal in the office he shared with Seinfeld. The two would sit at their confront desks, surrounded by novelists. The network reps had no place to sit perhaps by design. A rep might offer a small suggestion: Jerrys too harsh in this scene. David would fidget with the golf club he kept in the corner, then answer: Nah, I dont think hes that harsh. David and Seinfeld were in charge now they were on their style to their vaunted Thursday-night time slot and No 1 ratings ranking.</p> <p>But all the writers braced themselves for a showdown over The Contest, Davids masturbation episode in the fourth season. The trick, in a broadcast sitcom, was to launching this as a plotline without offending standards and practises. George explains it to his friends this way: My mother caught me. Doing what, asks Jerry. You know. I was alone. I stopped by the house to drop the car off My mom had a glamour publication So one thing led to another George explains that his shocked mother screamed, fell, hurled her back away, and ended up in hospital.</p> <p>But the real action begins when George says to his friends, Ill tell you one thing. I am never doing that again.</p> <p>What, in your mothers home? asks Elaine. Or wholly? </p> <p>Altogether. Georges certainty elicits groans all around. What, you dont think I could do it? </p> <p>Well, Jerry tells, I know I could hold out longer than you. George smirks. Care to make it interesting? George, Jerry, and Kramer wager $ 100 each on who can hold out the longest. Elaine wants in, too, but the guys balk. Its easier for a woman not to do it than a man, Jerry protests. We have to do it. Its part of our lifestyle. But they relent, as long as she gives them odds; shell put up $150. </p> <figure id="img-4"> <a href="#img-4" class="article__img-container"> </p> <div class="u-responsive-ratio"> <img class="gu-image" alt="Seinfeld" /><figcaption class="caption"> The Contest. Photo: Seinfeld </figcaption><p>To keep this up as the main thrust of a primetime indicate, the writers had to come up with a euphemism for masturbation. They went one better: they came up with a new term. To abstain from masturbation was to be master of your domain. This allows the characters free and easy discussion of their sexual thoughts and exploits without one dirty word. The humour came from the scripts abstinence from even the word masturbation, much less anything more graphic. An early draft had George using the word tugging, but even that was cut. Kramer caves because of the woman walking around her apartment naked with her tints open, and later sleeps with her. Elaine caves when she stands behind John F Kennedy Jr in a workout class. Sly scenes depicting each character in bed at night clarify the status of each contestant: those who are still masters toss and turn, while those who have been satisfied sleep well.</p> <p>As with most Seinfeld plotlines, it came from a real-life bet David was involved in.( He claims to have won .) The table-read went well, with even more laughs than usual. Still, the subject matter left the writers sure that the network would protest. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, meanwhile, kept waiting for the executive heads to object specifically to Elaines participation. A woman talking about masturbation in primetime seemed an obvious place to draw the line.</p> <p>Instead, a shock. Its perfect, the network told. Dont touch it.
