The Chiles Experience

I was interviewed by Adrian Chiles on Radio 5 Live today. It was a pre-record, so I managed (just about) to fit it around my other commitments.

It was a great experience, in hindsight. I was quite stressed or anxious about it for a few days, and it took lots of back and forth to pin down a time. There were a few technical things to deal with as well. But that’s all a part of it.

He seemed really nice and also had read the book, which is a bonus. He said lovely things about it and let me ramble on quite a lot about various things. I feel like I managed to cover the main bits, say some stuff about what I think is important and hopefully kept the content engaging for the listener.

You can listen here:

It starts at about 1hr 40 in, takes about twenty minutes and they do a lovely thing where they cut in some original pathe news voiceover about Eileen.
