EP.212 - KIRSTY YOUNG

Adam talks with Scottish journalist and broadcaster Kirsty Young about the danger of falling in love with the sound of your own voice, why social media isn't all bad (or is it?), whether you should trust the BBC, behind the scenes moments from Desert Island Discs, their respective encounters with Tom Hanks, when and if it's OK for broadcasters to get emotional, why the death of the Queen nearly tipped Kirsty over the edge live on air, what got Kirsty through her bout of ill health, and a few of the things she and Adam put in Room 101. There's also some unexpected Song Wars nostalgia.

This conversation was recorded face to face in London on October 18th, 2023.

Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support and conversation editing.
