Eliza has just finished the most hyped book of 2019: "Three Women".
It's a non-fiction 'ripping yarn', investigating the private lives of three American women over an 8 year period.
Eliza's verdict? 7.5 out of 10. She liked it without loving it. But she wonders critical because everyone has been raving about it.
Meanwhile, Geraldine is raving about the TV series "Chernobyl". Written by an American screenwriter previously known for comedy, it provides an insight into the nuclear incident that scarred the Ukraine and ultimately lead to the downfall of the Soviet Union.
The women briefly touch on Brexit and a brilliant essay by the Irish writer and journalist Fintan O'Toole.
