This week, we’re covering a particularly English psychosis: the upper class failson who decides to foment a coup in a central African country. Okay, maybe this type of failson is uniquely confined to the Thatcher family. That’s right, Maggie’s son Mark tried to take over Equatorial Guinea in 2004 with the help of a dead-eyed SAS madman and a South African mercenary named something like Jeep vander Honk. We brought on Joe Kassabian (@jkass99), host of the Lions Led by Donkeys podcast, to discuss this with Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum).
