    EP.142 - BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH

    Adam talks with British poet, writer and musician Benjamin Zephaniah.
    PLEASE BE AWARE: During the first 10 minutes of our conversation Benjamin told me about some relatives suffering with the effects of COVID and included some details that may be upsetting to hear for people who have lost loved ones to the disease. So if you're worried, skip past those first ten minutes and you should be OK. It's not all pandemic chat though - mainly Benjamin describes fascinatingly how managed to make the transition from angry young criminal to internationally celebrated writer.

I love this podcast

If there is any episode more perfect than the Fran Healy episode, I'd like to hear about it. This was so fun to listen to, so much wanking. I come and go from certain podcasts but if a new Buckles is up then I'm making it a priority listen.

Gently entertaining

Mr. Buxton makes a great ramble chat. Try the Charlie Brooker one. He intersperses each section with mildly funny tunes. One of my favourite bits is how he introduces the ep. He's literally walking his dog Rosie while he does it. He seems pretty humble, and even listens to the guest: something few interviewers manage. You never get shouted at. I dunno why the whole thing appeals, but try it.
