Episode 3: Who Is Conor Houston Jealous Of?
After two incredibly self-indulgent solo episodes, I finally have a guest. It's none other than Conor Houston, a man who has gone from being a complete stranger to a best friend over the past three years or so. Last Saturday, we set up microphones in my loft and we chatted for almost two hours. "We can edit it down," I thought, but then when I listened back I realised it was all pretty good. So I've chopped it into 5 pieces, and that's the next 5 episodes of the podcast.
