Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are comedian, writer and podcasting doyenne VIV GROSKOP (The Anna Karenina Fix) and music journalist and author of the forthcoming Selling The Pig: Terra Firma & The Final Years Of EMI, EAMONN FORDE (Guardian, Big Issue). The podcast takes a philosophical turn as we explore identity, friendship, marriage and the death of ambition while considering whether ghost trains can ever be gorgeous and whether any of us are indispensable. Please mind your step and watch out for the technicolor vomit. Wish you were here?
