Lorra Lorra Bruvvah Buxton.

I think Guz is a bit schtick but I like him and found this episode to be better than most in the last couple of years.

He seems like a friend of the show now, so it would be interesting if he was invited along to the regular Posh School Meet-Up pods with Joe and Louis.

Mobbd

I like him too. And strong agree it would be fun to hear him lampin' with JC and Lou.

Hat FM

Yeah great chemistry between Adam and Guz. found much of this run a bit mediocre tbh.

saw this on another thread in the music section. can't believe how young Adz looks:

Rather softball interview with Kirsty Young, a lot of tedious bbc praise with zero pushback.

Yeah, pretty bland. But! Some good quartermaster stuff at the end including a slightly remixed version of Quantum of Solace. Was nice to hear and kinda funny to think of Kirsty Young being a quartermaster somehow.

Someone I follow on twitter posted a link to the recent Radio 4 show of Kirsty Young interviewing Jada Pinkett Smith with a warning not to listen to it without first ensuring there was a bucket handy.

I mean, she was never Jeremy Paxman (I guess)... but has she lost it? I used to like her on Desert Island Discs.

I was out of commission with norovirus yesterday so I listened to some old episodes with Louis (49 and 81) to cheer myself up. They're so good. Classic pod.

It has become a podcast where I just automatically delete the ones I'm not interested in BUT the Guz Khan one was a total delight, especially the last few minutes and the unexpected callback to his first episode. "That's enough of that, Johnny's Bleeding." Buckles reduced to wheezing helpless laughter a la the Blahboobidybayah saga is always gold.

That really was joyous

"Johnny's bleeding ruined your day?!"

Adam's giggling after asking Guz if he was a good Muslim had me creased. That sort of slightly mischevious Adam is so much fun compared to the more pensive version of himself he sometimes presents.

For anyone else who missed this interview Buckles did this summer:


Will Sharpe is noticeable meh. Adam really tries to get some pep into it but it just sounds like some guy who did classics at Oxbridge walking through life's open doors.

This chip on my shoulder sounds delicious, yum.

He struck me as rather dull as well. I always feel sorry for Buckles when he's being his usual charming, funny self and guests seem to respond like "...?"


selectivememory

Well, I thought he seemed like a very nice and reasonably interesting man. Only really familiar with him from his appearance in White Lotus, and he was good in that, but didn't realise he'd written and directed a load of things of his own.

Was that the case here? I thought Will seemed to be quite in tune with Adam's humour. He wasn't riffing with him like other guests, but he was laughing a lot at what Adam was saying.

It wasn't the most dynamic episode, but it was ok. More like an interview than a ramble chat.

I don't know... there are plenty of chancers who get a leg up purely because they went to Oxbridge but I think Sharpe has enough under his belt to prove that he is actually talented. And I say that as someone who didn't go to uni and works in an industry teeming with Oxbridge graduates, so I also have a sizable chip!

Fair enough, I'm probably just talking through a mouthful of sour grapes, despite the obvious availability of the aforementioned delicious shoulder chip.

The latest ep - is Langham mentioned at any point? White Lotus was enjoyable enough but the only thing I find intriguing about Will Sharpe is his old Chris Langham apologism and how he feels about it in this current career phase/general social climate. Knowing Buckles I doubt he'd raise it and WS probably has some cautious Hollywood rote response if it comes up so I'll probably not bother listening

Schnapple

He doesn't mention it, but then, the film is so obscure that I'd never heard of it outside of this place. Interview was otherwise pleasant enough. I really like some of Sharpe's work, but it's clear that he puts a lot of his experience into that rather than being particularly open or verbose as a mental health advocate, primed for podcasts. Fair enough.

Guz Khan one had me rolling laughing.

phantom_power

I didn't think I knew who he was but looking on Wikipedia I realise he was in Giri/Haji, in which he was brilliant

Which film?


Pink Gregory

Black Pond, the Darkest Universe and the Electrical Life of Louis Wain, are the films he's directed I think?

Same here. Now I'm going to listen immediately just in case Giri/Haji comes up.

He would respond to ad with 'OK' quite a lot which maybe sounds a bit standoffish. He seemed nice enough though. The bit with ad discussing his being ripped was rather awkward and funny

If you've not seen Black Pond, I highly recommend it. I've been a fan of Sharpe's work ever since.

He's very good at funny/sad, which is my sweet spot. There are scenes in Flowers that reduce me to a teary mess, no matter how many times I watch it.

Perhaps not the most sparky interviewee, but I thought he came over pretty well, if a bit reticent.

I know (I think anyway) that Guz Khan was only pretending he didn't really know who Paul McCartney is but it's still a bit eye rolling, and he laboured the joke somewhat claiming he only recognised the name from Linda McCartney sausage rolls.

I still can't decide if he was joking or not. I mean, he must've at least heard of Paul McCartney, right? Even if he's never paid any attention to his music?
