    • Society & Culture

For the latest Welcome to Yorkshire Talkshire podcast we caught up with a guest who can definitely talk, the one and only amazing orator, Gyles Brandreth, ahead of his appearance at Ilkley literature Festival chatting about his autobiography ‘Odd Boy Out’ and before he embarks on his 2022 ‘Break A Leg’ tour. A writer, actor, broadcaster and former MP, Gyles’ great-grandfather was a keeper of the poorhouse in Bradford and Gyles’ vast teddy bear collection is on display at Newby Hall in North Yorkshire … think Fozzy from The Muppets, Pooh, Paddington and the county’s very own Sooty. Gyles is passionate about Yorkshire … including the Brontes in Haworth and its spectacular countryside, loving Leeds a city he visited often to film Channel 4’s Countdown … AND brilliant Bridlington on the coast. He describes Yorkshire as “The world in one county … and that’s its genius because it has everything. It’s as modern as tomorrow with a lot of time for yesterday.” Wherever Gyles is in the world there’s always a piece of Yorkshire close to him. Listen to his amusing anecdotes and Yorkshire tales. It’s the latest, Welcome to Yorkshire, ‘Talkshire’ podcast, chatting to celebrated celebrities and fantastic folk about Yorkshire, growing up in the county, filming here, touring with top shows, places to visit, living the Yorkshire life and so much more. Be entertained and inspired … it’s the Welcome to Yorkshire ‘Talkshire’ podcast.
