Adam talks with American comedian, actor and writer, Desiree Burch. Conversational tangents include fantasy jobs, teenage sexual angst, the reason that aged 12 Adam was concerned he might be the antichrist, relationship malaise, and some frank descriptions of Desiree’s younger days working as a pro dominatrix in New York.
Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support and Emma Mills for additional editing.

I'm enjoying the conversation with Desiree Bunch.
Your story about the Radiohead gig reminded me of seeing Californian punk band Social Distortion a few years ago, where the singer Mike Ness talked about a song called Sick Boy from their 1990 self-titled album (which is essentially about the annoying jocks they always hated) becoming popular and, from the stage, seeing those exact guys rocking out to it at gigs, and upsetting everybody else around them.
Love the podcast, cheers.
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.
