The Stack

I was on The Stack recently, a podcast about magazines from Monocle Radio.

Host Fernando is a lovely and attentive guy and I think I did quite well thanks to his questions. I explained New Escapologist accurately and with good humour as well as explaining the appeal of a less work-driven lifestyle. I also had a cold at the time, so my answers are all baritone and vocal-fried. Enjoy!

The whole episode (and indeed the show) is worth a listen but the bit about New Escapologist starts at 8:34.
