Just not very good
I didn't really think there was much to ask Alan Carr, and it would seem I was correct. I imagined that he liked a drink, and he does and it causes domestic struggles. There you go.
The interviewer completely annoyed me by being too friendly but, worse than that, she turned up to a dog walk in urban shoes and apparently carrying a handbag. Maybe the interviewer should be a dog person or perhaps the podcast needs renaming?
I have to admit I'm a huge fan of the Frank Skinner show the chemistry between Frank, Emily, Alun and not forgetting the brilliant Gareth who was there at the start. When I saw Emily was doing a podcast of her own I was interested to see what angle she'd take - just listened to the Alan Carr and Ross Noble podcast and found them highly entertaining not just because they were very funny but Emily has a great interview style and she gets the most out of her walking companion. Looking forward to more of these podcasts.
I hope this will be a long running weekly podcast rather than a limited series.
