This fortnight, Alastair and Nick continue their regular Aaron Sorkin coverage with The Trial of the Chicago Seven, then make a nod to Halloween in Lovecraft Country.

But first, Nick’s read new Hollywood-vampire graphic novel Dracula, Motherfucker! while Alastair’s seen timely sequel Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm.

And, speaking of Sacha Baron Cohen, they then tell you about The Trial of the Chicago Seven (11:44, ending spoilers from 27:34) and whether Aaron Sorkin’s writing style can even overwhelm history.

Lastly this spooky season, they float on down to Lovecraft Country (31:25) season 1, with lots of general chat about specific episodes, although surprisingly not giving away the ending.
