Description

Tony turns the tables on YouTuber and podcasting megastar True Geordie as they sit down to chat about life, anger and everything in between.

True Geordie (real name Brian Davis) quickly admits he was an angry young man growing up in Newcastle where everyone’s dads were either in jail or had been to jail. We hear how working as an off-shore deep-sea diver turned him into a man (and what the sea floor covered in crabs looks like!), why depression and the death of a friend led him to upload his first YouTube video and why becoming a Youtuber is like becoming a boxer. Of course they talk about True Geordie’s beloved Newcastle United and we hear how Alan Shearer taught him to keep a part of his life for himself.

A rare chance to hear True Geordie being grilled by someone else for once!
