GIDEON COE & RUTH PADEL - Don't Touch The Sand

Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are BBC 6 Music presenter GIDEON COE and poet RUTH PADEL (Rembrandt Would Have Loved You, Voodoo Shop, The Soho Leopard, Darwin - A Life in Poems, I'm a Man: Sex, Gods and Rock 'n' Roll). In this episode we suffer health cures in Edinburgh, explore ancient caves, are threatened by both a school of killer whales and a lone tiger, and do everything we can to avoid catching rabies. Along the way we remember the endless summers of childhood, celebrate the joy of a simple postcard message and plan a cavort with David Niven. Wish you were here?
