    Ep.10 Paul Doran Jones

    Ep.10 Paul Doran Jones

    James speaks to old school friend and fellow rugby player Paul Doran Jones about their friendship from a young age, what they got up to in their early years, and their questionable fashion sense (deep V-necks were a staple for a night out). Paul talks about his time in Ireland and training with Trinity, to being sent to New Zealand and living with next to nothing in his bank account, and then to his set up at Gloucester. He also touches on his journey into fatherhood, and the many obstacles he has faced in trying to be the best dad he can be through his experiences of the family court system.


    You can find Paul on Twitter and Instagram at @PaulDoranJones.

    Ep.7 Jamie Morton

    James Haskell talks to podcast extraordinaire, Jamie Morton, about the success of My Dad Wrote A Porno. From reading porn in a church in their first live show (which James attended), to selling out the Sydney Opera House four times, selling out The Royal Albert Hall, and recording one of their episodes for HBO, Jamie and James discuss how it sky-rocketed as one of the most listened to podcasts, and how it shows just how much the world needs humour, escapism and laughter (in the shape of Jamie's dad's dodgy porn) right now.


    There will be a special Christmas episode of My Dad Wrote a Porno airing on Monday 7th and Monday 14th December. Find the podcast where you usually listen to your podcasts, on Instagram at @mydadwrotea and Twitter at @DadWroteAPorno. Find Jamie himself on @uncleegor on all platforms.
