Doug Johnstone Podcast

Series 2, Episode 16

We interviewed Doug via Skype a few weeks ago, and he's great. Not only is he an author, a journalist, a musician, a former designer of radars and resident writer with William Purves Funeral Directors (more of that in the podcast), he's also a huge Iain M. Banks fan.

Find out about his many roles, his love of psychological thrillers and his hatred of The Hobbit, plus a lot more about THAT residency position.
