Until a couple of months ago, it meant something different to say, “I know I’m not going to be the next Charlie Rose,” but you know what I mean.
No interview this time, just a guy talking to himself! A column by Oliver Kamm about the importance of Asterix the Gaul causes me to recap a little of 2017, lament the decline of Oliver’s mother, past guest Anthea Bell, fill you in on the regrets of some of the guests I missed out on, and talk through why I’m doing what I’m doing here. No visitation by Christmas ghosts necessary! Give it a listen!
