Ep. 5: Gosford Park

*This New York Times review has provided us with a new life motto.

*Learn more about the real Ivor Novello, “the much-better-looking Andrew Lloyd Webber of his day.”

*Read up on contemporary investigations into war profiteering (but without Laura’s 1930s radio announcer voice).

*We cited this Lucy Worsley book and highly recommend it. Lucy is the co-chief curator of Historic Royal Palaces, and her Instagram is a hoot and a half. We also recommend this book if you’re interested in the British country house system.

*Join us next time for In the Heart of the Sea!
