    It's our 50th episode! Dame Maureen Lipman

    It's our 50th episode! Dame Maureen Lipman

    It's a big day for Rosebud, as it's our 50th episode. No, we can't quite believe it either! We started Rosebud in September 2023 with Dame Judi Dench, and so we wanted to bring you another theatrical dame for our 50th show. And so it's with pride that we give you one of our greatest actresses, and an old friend of Gyles's, Dame Maureen Lipman. Maureen tells Gyles about her childhood, growing up in a close Jewish family in Hull. Maureen's mother used to encourage her to perform for her friends when they came over for drinks, and Maureen's gift for making people laugh was born. Maureen and Gyles talk about her drama school days, and the early part of her career, with Laurence Olivier at The National Theatre, at the RSC, and in film, in Up The Junction. They talk about the start of her relationship with Jack Rosenthal, whom she eventually married, and about what happened when Hugh Jackman announced, on stage, that he was too sick to do a Saturday matinee of Oklahoma. This episode is full of funny stories, revelations, and impressions.

    We recorded this live at The Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond, South-West London.

    At the end of the show there's a special treat, which is a remix of the legendary Rosebud themetune.

    Enjoy this.

    Kathleen Stock

    Kathleen Stock

    This week's Rosebud guest is Professor Kathleen Stock, the philosopher and writer. As Gyles says in his introduction, Stock has, at times, been a controversial figure in the debate about gender identity, but in this episode, we aim to get behind the headlines and find out about her life. The conversation takes us from her early years, playing games in the park behind their terraced house, to schooldays in Montrose, where she was the target of a long campaign of bullying, to her university days and the beginning of her academic career, to her first marriage and eventual coming out as a lesbian. Gyles and Kathleen then talk about the events that led to her resignation from her post as Professor of Philosophy at the University of Sussex, following an outcry over a blog she'd written about the Gender Recognition Act. What is like to be ostracised by your profession and subject to public condemnation? This is a fascinating episode of Rosebud; whatever your views, we hope you enjoy finding out a bit more about Kathleen Stock.

    Robert Lindsay

    Robert Lindsay

    Robert Lindsay is Gyles's guest this week, and the conversation they have is brilliant: evocative, revealing, and funny. Robert takes Gyles back to his working class childhood, growing up as the son of a carpenter in a two-up-two-down house in Derbyshire; he reminisces about his parents' love for each other and for dancing and laughing together, and about the practical jokes they used to play on their neighbours. Robert talks about how he was encouraged to act by teachers at school, who spotted his talent and nurtured it; and about his time at RADA and the early days of his career. He tells Gyles about the intoxication of his days on Broadway, and how he started to believe his own hype after he won the Tony for Me and My Girl, and about the failure of the feature film he made with Carl Reiner. This is a fascinating chat, full of great stories. Thank you, Robert.

    Björn Ulvaeus - ABBA legend

    Björn Ulvaeus - ABBA legend

    Björn Ulvaeus is pop music royalty, a founder member of one the most successful pop groups in history - ABBA. So when Gyles was given the opportunity to interview him at a special event in Bridlington, the Rosebud team hotfooted it up there to record it. What you're going to hear is a very special, wide-ranging and fascinating conversation about Björn's life and his incredible career. Björn grew up in Västervik, a small coastal town on Sweden's east coast. It was a happy childhood, but he knew his future lay beyond the little town, and it turned out that his guitar was his escape route. In this interview, Björn tells Gyles about meeting Benny, how they clicked immediately and started to write songs together. He tells Gyles about their songwriting process, which is riveting. He talks about the night ABBA won Eurovision, and the difficult period that followed. He talks about the band's split, and about the effect of fame on his family. Gyles and Björn also - exclusively - reveal that they've been writing a song together. Will it ever see the light of day? You'll have to listen to find out...

    Our thanks to the team at Bridlington Business Day. And our thanks to Björn Ulvaeus and Christina Sas.

    Suzy Eddie Izzard

    Suzy Eddie Izzard

    This week's guest is the stand-up comedian, actor, marathon-runner and political activist Suzy Eddie Izzard. Suzy tells Gyles about her new name, and why she's relaxed about what people to choose to call her. She then takes Gyles back into her childhood, spent in Aden, Northern Ireland and South Wales, until the sudden death of her mother changed everything and Suzy and her brother were sent to boarding school.
    Suzy talks about what made her want to perform, what gives her drive to take on new and greater challenges all the time; she and Gyles talk about street performing, and about Suzy's current, ground-breaking solo production of Hamlet (on at London's Riverside Studios in Hammersmith). Enjoy this fascinating episode of Rosebud.
