EP.91 - MARLON JAMES

Adam talks with Jamaican writer Marlon James about the 80s, bad writing habits, heavy metal, why you should always consult Peter Gabriel about cultural appropriation, and the controversy that surrounded the 2019 Oscar winner for best film, 'Green Book'.

Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support and to Matt Lamont for additional editing.

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes

Adam
