The crew convenes for another Plato's Retreat presented by Cassels Brewing Co - through the magic of the internet/telecommunication network in the year 2020.

Level 3 has been a bit of a slog for the gang - Rob is pleased that he's getting 2 hours of Emmerdale a day though (and the PM/Ashley Bloomfield are apparently big fans). There's lots of basketball being played and that's something for Sam to be cheerful about 

Otherwise they play a bunch of songs which is always a bit of fun eh
