#179 - Alastair Campbell (Interview Show)



Alastair Campbell was Tony Blair's right hand man for many years, both as campaign director and Director of Communications for Blair's Labour government. Tom has a conversation with him about why he wants Biden to win and six recordings that represent various political milestones: Frankie Valli - "The Night", Fleetwood Mac - "Don’t Stop", D:Ream - "Things Can Only Get Better", Simply Red - "Money's Too Tight To Mention", ABBA - "The Winner Takes It All", and Eurythmics - I Saved the World Today". NB - This episode was originally recorded as part of Tom's Greatest Music of All Time Podcast, which organically evolved from its inception in early 2020, from a focus on the discussion of music to also exploring pop culture, comedy, entertainment, entrepreneurship, philosophy, science, politics and current affairs commentary. It was renamed as the Tom Cridland Podcast in January 2023.
