For the 69th Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined at the Festival Hall in London by Tom Bowtell, who describes himself as a writer, actor, director and maker of adventures (and you can look up some of the things he has done with the company Coney here). Their discussion covers bold beginnings, the riches to be found in random facts and bird ‘jizz’ (entirely SFW, by the way).

Another book by Patrick Ness, The Knife Of Never Letting Go, is discussed in Page One 18.

This episode features a jingle written for the podcast by the band Friends Of Friends; you can find some of their music here.
