Absolutely loved this interview. I know Chris's mom. She's bl**dy amazing. An angel in human form. Great interview, loved it's chilled, unstructured natural vibe. The friendship is palpable and sweet.

What a wasted opportunity. Ruby Wax came across as closed, guarded and inauthentic prob as a result of Louis' interview style. He hardly mentioned her great work with frazzled cafes and just chuntered on about their respective tv programmes from 100 years ago. I'm pleased I heard Ruby on R4 which captured more about where she is now.
