188: Writing thrillers with Mat Osman of Suede and William Shaw plus Queen & Slim, La Roux, Tame Impala

It’s crime fiction week! We talk to Mat Osman of Suede about his genuinely excellent debut novel The Ruins, and our old Smash Hits/Select colleague William Shaw about his spectacular new career as an author of superior crime fiction.


Plus, does much-lauded new chase movie Queen And Slim deliver on its promise as the Black Lives Matter Bonnie & Clyde? New albums from day-glo ice queen of the rave La Roux and yacht techno space Jesus Tame Impala. And much more besides. 


Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden, in the conservatory with the candlestick. Audio production by Alex Rees, with the lead piping in the ballroom. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
