Brief chat

This is a nice little chat about Dickens and Jacobi, but I wouldn't say it was 'interesting' as such - turn on Radio 4 and you'll probably hear a more directed/engaging conversation. If you're a Dickens/Jacobi fan, by all means, give it a listen; otherwise, it's free background listening & as long as you keep your sights set low, it will serve well enough for that purpose.
