Dan Hannan

This week in Stuff That Interests Me we are talking Brexit with MEP, Dan Hannan. Now we’re leaving it’s time to start thinking about what we want to be. “If we do a New Zealand or a Singapore, as a G7 country, the impact could be planetary. If we left the EU to become a Venezuela that would be catastrophic.” Daniel Hannan is a writer, who has been a Member of the European Parliament for 17 years. He is the author of nine books, the latest of which is What Next: How to get the best...


Comedian Ben Norris

This week in Stuff That Interests Me I'm joined by comedian Ben Norris. Ben is a veteran of the comedy circuit having played clubs up and down the country and around the world for some 20 years or more. His TV appearances include Mock The Week and Never Mind The Buzzcocks, but he's in that odd category of comedian (and there about 10-20 acts like this) which is: known and admired on the circuit, but not a household name, can play pretty much any room under any circumstances, the other...


Paul Burke talks advertising

Writer and producer, Paul Burke, is a veteran of the advertising industry. He's been in the game since the 1980s, has seen the booms, the busts, the highs, the lows, and has won loads of awards in the process.

Simon Evans

My guest today is comedian, Simon Evans. You may know Simon from his appearances on Micheal McIntyre's Roadshow or Live At The Apollo, you may know him from his Radio 4 show, Simon Evans Goes To Market, or you may know him from the live comedy circuit. He's an interesting guy - and I found his comments on his writing methods towards the end of the show particularly interesting. Enjoy! Follow Simon on Twitter

Jamie Bartlett

Dark Net and Radicals author, Jamie Bartlett, talks to Dominic Frisby about the technological and political changes that are hitting the world. Our fixation with Brexit is like our fixation with the Pope in the time of Henry VIII just as Gutenberg's printing press had been invented. We should be more worried about the technological developments occurring. How we approach technology will be the big dividing line between left and right. Borders and sovereign nations, in their current form,...

The next great investment trend will be around the fact that we are all going to love a lot longer. Find out more in the this fascinating interview.

Alastair Campbell talks to Dominic Frisby

This week in Stuff That Interests Me I am joined by Tony Blair's head of media and strategy, Alastair Campbell. "I don't think I've ever known such a collection of A grade problems in the world and yet we have C/D grade leaders", he says in this far ranging interview which covers sport, politics, technology, Brexit and mental health. "I get creativity from my depression," says Alastair. The latest volume of Alastair's diaries, 2005-2007 - the period of transition from Blair to Brown - is...


Liam Halligan - Clean Brexit

This week's Stuff That Interests me is with Telegraph columnist and broadcaster Liam Halligan discussing Clean Brexit, written with economist Gerard Lyons. The second half, in which Liam describes the conspiracies afoot, particularly in House Of Lords, to undermine the vote and engender a second referendum are very interesting, as are the potential consequences to our democracy and economy of a re-vote.


Paul Kingsnorth

"Reformed environmentalist" and Booker-nominated author Paul Kingsnorth turns up at my house and we talk.

Alastair Campbell and other Virgin podcasts

I have recorded three more Virgin podcasts, including the one below with Alastair Campbell. I think they are all well worth your time listening to.
