43. Eddie Izzard, Perseverance, Mentors & Challenge

Eddie Izzard is here! Half of the office had to shove their fists in their mouths so as not to scream with excitement. And while they were doing so, Jo Elvin and Helen Whitaker nipped into the podcupboard to talk to Eddie about his new autobiography, Believe Me; his love of the SAS and GLAMOUR (both pretty similar tbh); and why Judi Dench sends him a signed banana before each new show.

And of course, it's time to run through three new Hey, It's OK... topics to keep things on the road. So hey, is it OK to keep going when you're not good at something? Is it OK to be your own mentor? And to make life bloody difficult for yourself?

****Hey, It's OK... will be at the London Podcast Festival! Come and see Jo, James and a celebrity guest in London for a live episode on Saturday 16 September – buy tickets now at kingsplace.co.uk****
