Howard Blum has been doing outstanding reporting for Air Mail on the murder of four college students in Idaho that shocked the country. This week, he joins Ashley and Mike to share the inside story on what happened when Michael Kohberger, the father of the accused killer, joined his son in that notorious white Hyundai for a cross-country drive from Idaho to the family home, in Pennsylvania—and why the case against Bryan Kohberger is far from a slam dunk. Then, if you think you’ve heard the last of Boris Johnson, think again. Stuart Heritage joins the show from the U.K., with the latest on how the former prime minister is eager to grab the spotlight and, it seems, loads of cash. And finally, we’ll be talking dirty. Specifically, in the style of the ancient Romans. Writer Harry Mount has a fun report on the obscene graffiti to be found in Pompeii. All this and more make this week’s show one you won’t want to miss. Listen by clicking Play below. But be sure to subscribe at Apple Podcasts or Spotify so you get every episode.
