    John Sweeney

    John Sweeney

    John Sweeney is a British investigative journalist and author. During his time at the BBC he worked on shows such as Panorama and Newsnight where his combative and bold style have seen him doorstep Putin, go undercover in North Korea, challenge Trump on his association to the mob and most infamously the time he yelled at scientologists.


    We caught up with John on what was VE Day and started our conversation by discussing the new normal, what we miss and what things we like about lockdown in the UK.


    John tells us about his journey into journalism and his time working at The Observer, the subsequent move into broadcasting at the BBC and the darker moments he has experienced personally, since leaving the corporation after an investigation he was doing on Tommy Robinson saw him land in hot water.


    John is wonderful company, with so many amazing stories from what is an incredible career spanning several decades and we hope this won't be the last time we talk.

    Fiona Murden

    Fiona Murden

    Fiona Murden is a leadership psychologist and author of several books, including Defining You, that looks at the process of psychological profiling and fulfilling your potential.


    We've been wanting to speak to Fiona for quite some time to look at a bit deeper at some of the science behind what Blank moments occur and what is most effective in combatting them.


    We started off by chatting about the full out from the coronavirus pandemic and how it will affect people's mental health in the longterm.


    Fiona tells us about her work with big business leaders and what goes into doing a successful psychological profile of potential employees.


    We discuss sleeping habits and the many themes we hear each week on the podcast from public failure to imposter syndrome.

    Paul Pilot

    Paul Pilot

    Paul Pilot aka Paul Wilkinson is musician, composer and producer from Northern Ireland. Best known for his band The Amazing Pilots and his recent film scores on documentaries like Finding Oscar and Netflix production The Final Cut for Orson, Paul has been a producer and sound engineer on works by Duke Special, Athlete, Rue Royale and All the Luck in the World. He is also the composer of our very own Blank Podcast title music.


    Paul is based in Berlin and so meeting up to record had always been difficult to arrange so, a remote recording was always on the cards.


    We started our chat by talking about expensive microphones and how much of a difference they make to the fine margins in vocal recordings. Paul tells about his own creative process and how we often find it hard to be satisfied with what we've made.


    We discussed his time as a kid growing up in Northern Ireland during the troubles and his desire to eventually seek a career in music by moving away.


    Paul tells us about collaboration and what it is like to be in a band with your brother.

    Marcus Brigstocke

    Marcus Brigstocke

    Marcus Brigstocke is a comedian, writer and actor. Known for satirical stand-up, musical theatre and radio broadcasting on stations such as Jazz FM.


    We met up Marcus a couple of months back, to discuss all manner of stuff, starting with all of our passions for the arts, particularly music, each of us talking about our first albums.


    Marcus tells us about his passion for cheese and the poignant moment in his life this passion stems from. The chat moved on to mental health and how Marcus makes a gratitude list each morning to help him stay level.


    We thought we'd give you all a little extra this week and have put together a little Spotify playlist to accompany this episode, see if you can spot the songs from our first albums https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3icMfrPwid1Stu2l9DTUsI
