Crave! episode 97: Radioactive, Eurovision, True Detective, Taylor Swift’s new album

As Simon and Steve inch ever closer to their hundredth episode, the emphasis remains on films. Radioactive is the story of Marie Curie, and a film that both our reviewers found quite engaging.

Less so Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga, to give this latest Will Ferrell vehicle its Sunday-best name. While Steve, and Debbie The Intrepid Guest Reviewer, both found it highly entertaining, there’s just a little too much Ferrell for Simon’s tastes.

So as a palate-cleanser, Simon’s been enjoying the new album Folklore from Taylor Swift. Steve’s willing to be convinced, but still allows that it’s worth a listen.

And Simon, having had more patience with the first series of True Detective than Steve did, is revisiting the show for its third series, and is finding much to like.
