The Dabblers meet Ed Needham

In our third guest special, we spoke to Ed Needham, magazine veteran and editor of Strong Words - a magazine all about books!


Ed sent us a righteous list of books to discuss, including Laurent Binet's HhHH, a genre-busting fiction based on the 1942 assassination of 'Butcher of Prague' Reinhard Heydrich, Money by Martin Amis and one of Curtis's favourite white dickheads Hunter S Thompson.


Listen and enjoy!
