#302 - Andrew Doyle (Greatest Music of All Time) *
The comedian and writer, Andrew Doyle, has a discussion with Tom about his views on pop music, as previously expressed in an article he wrote for Scribd entitled, "The Power of Pop". He explains why he wishes pop stars would stop commenting on politics and current affairs, why he enjoys Morrissey's outlandish views, what made him create the parody Twitter account, Titiana McGrath, and why he has lost friends in comedy. His new book, Free Speech: Why It Matters, is out now.
