Gyles Brandreth: The Hand That Shook The Hand of Oscar Wilde

We dedicate this episode, along with all the others in the series, to the memory of our wonderful pal Barry: a joyous spirit, a supremely funny man, and one of the kindest, warmest, nicest, sweetest people you could ever have the privilege of spending time with. We will all miss him so much.

Nestled in the warmth of the pub, Barry and Bob are joined by the delightful Gyles Brandreth for a pow-wow about how Barry went from being a turn to a writer, shaking hands with the hand that shook hands with Oscar Wilde, Bernard Manning's whitewashed wall, and everything in between!

With many thanks to the Kites (Mark Allen, Jack Cryer and Matt Hodgson) for the tremendous theme music.
