Series 2, episode 5

Ben Davis is a children's author from Tamworth. He's also a bloody good sport.

Waterstones in Sutton Coldfield were kind enough to give us some space to interview Ben. Indeed, the interview was so good, we did some bits of it three times....

Running time: 44.57

Big thank you to the staff in Waterstones Sutton Coldfield who took us in and provided us with recording shelter despite the fact that it was the Great Midlands Fun Run at the time. Apologies to the customers who ventured upstairs while we there and heard us laughing, and swearing, and then laughing some more. Bloody dictaphone.
