Since the title of the podcast is “Full Disclosure” I’d better disclose that James O’Brien is a colleague of mine on LBC and Global Radio are the publishers of my podcasts. I want to write about James’ podcast because it is a good example of how the long-form interview both entertains and enlightens. Each episode is normally an hour-long, and James interviews a mixture of guests from the worlds of media, entertainment and politics. He has time to get to know them and get inside their heads.
Until 1965 the British said “in the street”. The sudden switch to “on the street” was a remarkable illustration of the direct impact of American cinema on our daily lives.
