At the start of lockdown, I thought I’d keep myself relatively sane by having a chat with a badass, creative friend that has seen me be a drunken idiot before – every Wednesday evening on Instagram Live.

It’s basically like we’re in a bar, just hanging out and you’re invited.
Waaaay better than a typical ‘interview’ I reckon.

They’re a bit sweary, very real and started off, technically, quite patchy but improved over time. Chat wise, there’s no evolution. I speak utter nonsense in all of ’em.

I really need to find a good name for this series though. Until then, here’s some “Instagram Live Interviews”. Urgh:
