#258 - Anna Beecher (Interview Show)



Anna Beecher is a writer whose debut novel, Here Comes the Miracle, will be released in February. She joins Tom for a conversation encompassing how dealing with personal tragedy inspired her to write this book, moving to Charlottesville in Virginia immediately after the violent Unite the Right rally in 2017, her views on the current political situation in America and why she appreciates John Lennon's song, "Watching The Wheels". 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.
