The episode starts like it is part 2 but it's not really so don't get upset. Lee and Simon talk about the closure of University dance courses in the UK, and Simon mixes metaphors (again) while remaining ambivalent about having opinions.
A list of things they cover: Going to University to do one thing but ending up doing something else; Universities as places that make things possible for people; dance as the canary in the Higher Education coalmine; how methodologies don't fucking matter; leaving University in debt and not making enough money ever to pay it back; dance as something trivial; developing a practice and avoiding the University; the wind blowing in a very clear direction; Lee sounding like a product manager; arts still being important in very expensive schools; universities not supposed to be for everyone; blaming a member of your own family; Norman up a ladder; listening a bit more; a bread update; and Simon's next tattoo.
