    Well, I thought the “Jo Yardley doesn’t like to be hugged” was a 1920s Berlin specific RP character bit. But by the tone of her reaction about hugging in Hi Fidelity… I think perhaps I should be jailed in 1920s Berlin for Harassment.

    Great show, though. Very interesting and informative. Very entertaining.
