This week Mike chats with Oscar winning Lord of The Rings Costume Designer, Ngila Dickson. Ngila tells Mike of her fashion business beginnings in New Zealand before losing it all and ultimately pushing through to her Hollywood successes. Ngila shares why she chose to do Lord of The Rings, discusses 'low-grade' sexism against the costume department and why the Green Lantern suit famously turned out as it did!

Ngila's 'book that everyone must read' - 'Apeirogon' by Colum McCann
