Meghan & Harry's Godparent Privacy Furore; And What Makes A True Eccentric?

Glasto's been and gone and the USA won the Women's World Cup - as the crowd began chanting "equal pay, equal pay." 


This week we cover the latest royal storm in a bone-china teacup, as Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex refuse to name the godparents of their newborn baby, Archie. Are the taxpayers entitled to this intel? Or is it time to stop seeing privacy, in our era of 360 surveillance, in black and white terms? 


We also take the BBC's eccentric quiz and discuss Will Self's riveting new documentary on what makes a true eccentric and how 'the eccentric' is oft commodified or misunderstood. Take the quiz and let us know - how eccentric are YOU?
