    Among many things, Damian talks about how Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks chose him to play Major Dick Winters in 'Band of Brothers', how he was given the role of Nicholas Brody in 'Homeland', how he created his character of Bobby Axlerod in 'Billions' and his latest role as an MI6 agent in a new miniseries 'A Spy Among Friends'.

    I was unbelievably lucky to have the chance to talk to Chris Difford of Squeeze. Chris formed Squeeze in 1974 by putting an advert in a shop window and Glenn Tilbrook was the only person to answer the ad. The partnership of Chris and Glenn was a collaboration with Chris writing the lyrics and Glenn writing the music.
    They had multiple chart-topping singles and albums and their ‘Singles’ album went platinum. Listen to the podcast to hear how the band went from the pubs of Deptford to Madison Square Garden.
    Chris talks with great honesty about the highs and lows, the ins and outs and the joys and trials of that journey. He also talks about his song-writing retreats, mentoring, his autobiography and his “I Never Thought It Would Happen” podcast.


    Cool for Cats!!
