Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are neuroscientist and stand-up comedian PROFESSOR SOPHIE SCOTT and comic actor MATHEW HORNE (Gavin and Stacey, Horne and Corden, Teachers, Bad Education). We discover the joys of academic libraries, the emotional exhaustion of performing comedy, musical tattoos and we learn the story of Kajagoogoo’s last show. Wish you were here?
