Andy Zaltzman - Tiny Revolutions
A really special guest this week as The Bugle podfather himself Andy Zaltzman joins Tiff Stevenson to talk through his tiny revolutions.
Hear about Andy as a child growing up with a sculptor father, the school report that has stayed with him, his dreams of being a cricket journalist, studying Ancient Greek comedy and how that influenced his work, finding comedic inspiration in the brilliance and inventiveness of Monty Python and The Day Today, how seeing Rob Newman gave him courage to do political comedy, growing as a stand-up comedian via the Edinburgh Fringe, the conception and evolution of The Bugle and how it was his saviour, maintaining a sense of silliness and absurdity when addressing difficult subjects, how the lateral thinking of cryptic crosswords helps his writing process, and the gratitude he feels when living out his childhood dreams of working in cricket on Test Match Special.
This is a Bugle Podcasts Production, produced by Ped Hunter.
