Dennis Rodman's strange new friendship with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong Un; a deep-dive into the archive via Tory backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg's interview with Ali G; and a most unfortunate story about a girl, a Tinder date, and a poo. It's our usual mixed bag on this week's episode of The High Low. Plus, did you know that purple was NOT Prince's favourite colour? On a not so light note, we discuss the thorny concept of 'safe spaces' in light of Oxford University's Vice Chancellor Louise Richardson's comments about homophobia at university (Dolly recommends this episode of Guys We Fucked for some interesting conversation on safe spaces https://m.soundcloud.com/guyswefucked/0155-09012017-nadine-strossen) and the sacking of Munroe Bergdorf, L'Oreal's first ever trans ambassador - after her comments on white privilege, post-Charlottesville. Plenty of recommendations from Pandora and a very hoarse Dolly this week: - Can I Be Me on iPlayer: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b094f49s - The Most Dangerous Place In The World by Lindsay Lee Johnson https://www.amazon.com/Most-Dangerous-Place-Earth-Novel/dp/0812997271 - Mariella Frostrup column - https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/sep/03/my-nephew-is-disabled-and-its-all-his-mothers-fault-mariella-frostrup - The Girlfriend Experience starring Riley Keogh https://play.google.com/store/tv/show/The_Girlfriend_Experience?id=bRMBVonjbOA&hl=en - Munroe Bergdorf interview on the L'Oreal race row in The Guardian https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/global/2017/sep/04/munroe-bergdorf-on-the-loreal-racism-row-it-puzzles-me-that-my-views-are-considered-extreme - Rod Liddle on freedom of speech for The Sunday Times Magazine: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/universities-are-a-safe-haven-from-censorship-a-sanctuary-of-free-speech-and-tolerance-pgpvqb7rv - @tanksgoodnews on Instagram - for restoring your faith in humanity Dolly also has a storage issue. If you have a particular knowledge of iCloud storage please do tweet @dollyalderton (NOT @pinsykes who'd rather eat her own foot than hear anything more about this) as Dolly desperately needs some guidance. Oh and if one more person sends Pandora a press release about Kate Middleton's morning sickness, she will scream. No, she is not writing a story about Kate Middleton's morning sickness. Nor is Dolly. Because that would be a very dull, very short story. You can e-mail us thehighlowshow@gmail.com and tweet us @thehighlowshow. Don't forget to rate, review and subscribe to The High Low on iTunes.
