#TSP068 - Jonjo O'Neill
What's good TSP listeners? Hope you're all feeling decent in these dark winter months. It's getting towards mid-December and we thought we'd invite you to snuggle down next to the podcast fire of episode 68. This week we were joined by top fella Jonjo O'Neill. Jonjo shared with us one of the most moving and spellbinding hours of podcast chat that we've ever been privy to. He's warm and candid and thoughtful and his story-telling and vocal tones are an absolute pleasure to listen to on this rollercoaster of a chat. Jonjo tells us of his life growing up in West Belfast, dealing with London life, his relationships with his parents and loads, loads more.You might recognise Jonjo from his work in the Pinter Plays at the Pinter theatre or from the final act of the magnificent Coen Brothers film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs amongst many other things. We can't thank him enough for coming on and sharing his thoughts with us. We hope it moves, excites and fills you with as much hope as it did to us. Enjoy...Here's some more information about the song Craig mentions in the intro to this week's pod. Please go and buy it when it's released on the 14th of December.
* some great UK podcasts have got together to release a brand-new Christmas single, called 'Sounds Of Christmas'
* The Podcast All-Stars include The Modern Mann, The Guilty Feminist, The Beef & Dairy Network Podcast, Answer Me This, Wanna Be, The Comedian's Comedian, The Two Shot, The Tip Off... and more!
* proceeds will go to Samuel's Charity, which helps kids living in underfunded children's wards make their lives more comfortable (The Modern Mann spoke to the charity's founder last week for episode called The Empty Seat)
* to get into the Top 40 we need around 11000 sales; Ed Sheeran's no1 last year got 85k. It's entirely possible with our combined reach.
* the Christmas charts are counted from 14th-21st Dec this year; so this is a strategic release
* a sale is better than a play: it takes 100 streams to count as a sale. That's a lot of streaming over a week... so just part with 99p and help change lives!
