    Ep. 52. Steve Chapman

    Ep. 52. Steve Chapman

    Steve Chapman is an artist, writer, speaker, consultant and silent podcaster. He is endlessly engaging and restlessly creative and is -also-endlessly making art, much of which he gives away for nothing; a lot of what Steve does is counter-intuitive, as you'll find out in this conversation. His work has hung alongside artists such as Shrigley and Picasso and he'll be the first ever Artist in Residence at The Good Life Experience, 2020.

    Ep. 51. Tom Herbert

    Tom Herbert has been an author, television personality, chef and public speaker. But he's given almost all of this up to follow his faith and work in an area that he, at last, finds truly rewarding. Charlie and Tom talk about fame, money, faith, charity and loads more. Tom remains one of the most charismatic and original voices in British food and -drum roll- this is his story.

    Ep. 50. Anja Dunk.

    Anja Dunk is a true polymath; she is an author, cook, artist, mother, expert in fermentation and lots more besides. And, what's more, she rarely talks of her skills and absolutely never shouts about them. This conversation was recorded at Charlie's new venture Camp Glen Dye in late October where Anja was one of the lead educators. Warning! Very croaky voice.

Great listen

new listener in America, and I have to tell you that listening to your podcast interviewing your father is worth ANYONE's time! Your father is a treasure, and has had one hell of a life. To say that I would love to pull a chair and share dinner with him, and you would be an understatement! Thank you for taking the time to put these together, you have introduced me to people not familiar to me here in the states, please keep them coming
