Roisin Conaty, Angling For An Invite, Faking Unhappiness & Applause Junkies

Jo and James are joined by the comedian, actress, and writer of the hit sitcom GameFace (in which she also does all the above) Roisin Conaty to talk telly, panel shows, and writing your friends onto the screen. Plus, is it acceptable to ask for the invitation to the thing you want to go to? Is it just James who pretends to be more unhappy than he is to make a miserable friend feel better about themselves? And is it just none of these guys who'll do something purely for the praise and acknowledgement? All this and more on this week's show!

This week's episode was recorded on January 10. It was edited by Kat Brown, with music by Martin Austwick.
