    In this powerful interview Nathaniel tells the story of the delays to his treatment, his approach to life since his diagnosis and how he ended up warming up for Keir Starmer.

Really enjoyed, as always, this episode. So interesting to hear about Stephens life, he’s a brilliant role model. Glad you are back Matt, missed your interviews very much.

Nadia Whittome

As much as love the variety of guests that appear on this show and hopefully you will be able to get Jason Williamson on at some point), the most recent episode let you down, Matt. Never have I heard such a woe-is-me interview. Hopefully come July 5th, we’ll see a change in Nottingham East.
