Really enjoyed both. The guy is inspiring makes want to get cracking on my own creative stuff. Really interesting to hear him talk about how the rough edges of ideas are the ideas. Good chats!

Two of the best podcasts I've ever heard. Such an interesting guy (not you buckles) interviewed perfectly (you, buckles). I was enthralled from star to finish. The cards really worked in the first part to keep the conversation varied and away from the obvious.

Loved the Eno podcast, as always. As a musician who struggles to keep things simple, it was inspiring!

Such great podcasts; a real luxury on the commute to work ????

Lovely listen that - nice.

What was the Fender Rhodes (?) piece at 40.32? (trainspotterish I know).

Dr B, all good conversations/interviews are discursive, or as you rightly describe them, 'ramble chats'! Eno has such a beautiful mind and these are terrific interviews. You rightly just let him drift around, let him pick up what ever takes his fancy, and nudge him in various directions every now and then. You're a fine interviewer. Love your jingles/musical interludes too by the way - please do more!

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes
