0:50 Ben is currently engrossed in HBO's historical drama Chernobyl. Like everyone else in the world, it seems. 

9:02 Fiona raves about Parasite but doesn't want to give too much away. Nonetheless, her enthusiasm convinces Ben he should watch it. 

13:00 Fiona sits down with Director Bong and his translator. He speaks about his enthusiasm for creating his own genre, his love of social dramas and critiques of late-capitalism. He shows Fiona a picture of his dog, and both of them reference Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. 

23:34 What Have You Been Watching? Fiona has been watching Yesterday , director Danny Boyle's fantasy rom-com about a world in which the world discovers The Beatles music for the first time, but neither John, Paul, George, nor Ringo get a look in. 

29:00 What Have You Been Watching? Ben checked out the feature documentary The Final Quarter , the hugely successful story of the treatment of AFL player and Australian of the Year, Adam Goodes, by football crowds and by the media, at the height of the divisive debate about racism in Australia.
