Today the brilliant British broadcaster and podcaster
Edith Bowman joins me to talk about
Midlake’s 2006 cult
classic The Trials of Van
Occupanther, how it soundtracked her early relationship with
her husband, its qualities of instant nostalgia and why she returns
to it time and time again, including as a balm during lockdown.
Plus, we talk about her experiences with live music during lockdown, who she’s most excited to see next year when touring resumes, the hidden tragedies of the absence of festivals, why she’s bad at saying no to things and her long friendship with friend of the show Drew Pearce.
