Perfect for Thinking

Love this podcast. Sam Leith lets his guests speak. Full of ideas.

The perfect listen for looking out of the bus window. I never read the books but I love hearing the chats. So interesting.

Bret Easton Ellis

Sam’s style of interview generally makes for an engaging listen, but this one with Bret Easton Ellis had so many nuggets for my English psyche it prompted me to say out loud “that was great!”.

Always fascinating

Varied and entertaining interviews. Authors reveal so much about their motivation, methods and influences. Sam Leith is excellent in getting interviewees to open up.
