Episode 7: Isaiah Johnson

Oh, you know Isaiah?

I first met Isaiah Johnson when I was teaching for NYU. Yup, in a former life, I worked ‘full-time’ as an ‘academic’ (inverted commas implying exactly what you think), and although facebook and twitter have kept me in touch with quite a few former students, there are only a handful with who I have become and remain friends. What I’m saying is, Isaiah is very easy to like; think John Hamm in last week’s Toast of London. When he was working over here a few years ago in the same theatre as my wife, she tells me everyone in the office had fallen in love with the guy. And I could quote a lot of reviews to back up my next statement: Isaiah can act. Oh yeah, and he can sing too. Like really sing.

Episode 6: Simon Darwen

This was the first interview I ever recorded, way back on St Patrick’s day, and it was the easiest to edit. I’d like to think this is because I’ve become much better at the editing process and instinctively know what to keep, but I think it’s largely down to the fact that the questions weren’t as good back then.

Episode 5: Siubhan Harrison

Okay, so…

Episode number 5 is alive! In it, Siubhan Harrison gives a great interview, full of sighs, laughs and sharp intakes of breath that punctuate some very candid revelations: from working as a Tequila Girl to indulging in day-long teenage strops when things don’t go her way, the honesty is strong in this one.

  • Matthew Matt Flynn

Episode 4: Matthew Flynn

Episode 4! This latest instalment again feels very different to what has gone before. By his own admissions, Matthew Flynn doesn’t normally wear his heart on his sleeve, but in this interview, he talks candidly about the financial and emotional pressures of being a parent who relies on acting to feed and clothe his kids, and of his nightmarish experience of stage-fright.

Episode 3: Sinead Matthews

Episode 3 is here, and I don’t mind telling you it was aa tough decision picking which interview to release next. Why Sinead? Well, aside from the fact that I love her infectious laugh, I think it’s a very different episode to the first two.
