Top Gear's Rory Reid (Season 2, Ep 8)

How did Rory Reid get his dream job, presenting one of the biggest TV shows on Earth? Despite many years as a motoring and tech journalist, he had only a few months to adjust to flying around the world driving supercars. In this world exclusive interview, he tells Olly Mann how he prepared for his BBC screentest, and why a rap video may just have secured him the gig; reacts to his treatment by the British tabloids, and explains why he has some sympathy with Jeremy Clarkson... Also this week, Ollie Peart considers the new live-action Tetris movie in The Zeitgeist. Plus: the Weetabix drink; a new product for night-time snackers; and some lesser-known competitive sports. Meanwhile, in the Foxhole, Alix sweats the small stuff as she answers a question of pheremones: is it normal to be attracted to your partner's sweat? Our song of the week is 'Life Itself' by Glass Animals. Big thanks to our sponsor for this episode, If you have a question for Alix for a future edition of the show, if you'd like to sponsor the show or buy us a beer then just visit our website at See You Next Tuesday!
