Fraser T Smith is a producer for some of music’s biggest names including Adele, Stormzy, Dave and Kano. He recently released his debut album "12 Questions" under the alias of "Future Utopia" where he posed twelve universal, human and urgent questions, all born of Fraser’s own anxieties about the world today. As part of the podcast, Fraser is pairing some of the sharpest minds in popular culture to answer these questions in order to examine the breadth of their answers, and to help him, and others navigate living in the modern world.

Pete Tong x Dan Smith
The 12th and final episode and what a finale this is. I am joined by the global ambassador for dance music; Pete Tong MBE, and the nicest man in show business; Dan Smith, lead singer of Bastille. Dan had already answered the question “What’s In A Name” on the 12 Questions album but in this episode he answers ‘Do We Really Care?’ by discussing public opinion, songwriting over zoom and whether the power of positivity can help save the planet. Pete offers insight into what it's like to have your name turned into cockney rhyming slang and he also reveals his record for how many shows he has performed in one night. I have absolutely loved having these conversations with so many household names and I really hope you've enjoyed listening to the answers that have been given by my incredible guests. Huge thanks to everyone that has taken part in the series and to you also for listening. Stay tuned!

Kojey Radical x Dermot Kennedy
Kojey Radical and Dermot Kennedy; I’ve had the pleasure of working with both artists separately in the studio and instantly saw similarities in the way they both work. We speak about legacy as an artist, Boris Johnsons hair, fear trumping faith, why Kojey doesn’t give a fuck, and somehow I think I’ve agreed to let them give me my first tattoo…

Kano / Simon Armitage might just be my favorite episode. Great podcast, makes you think but also very entertaining. Thanks Fraser 😊
Love this podcast
The most interesting and enlightening podcast I’ve listened to in ages. The George the Poet episode in particular.
Really good chats
Loving it so far. The George the Poet and Kate Tempest one was a great listen. It’s like late night chats at a party!
