Brilliant

Jo Brand has always been an up and down woman for me but I've always liked her more than disliked her. That said, this interview has made me want to read her book, when asked if there was anything she wouldn't have done, her response was almost exactly the same as mine. I'm very much looking forward to hearing her book. Thankyou

Not note worthy

Don't waste you time on downloading this even if it is free - but do spend your time listening to Jo Brands Born Lippy instead - frank, funny and insightful! Under the TV celebrity/ acerbic comedian persona is a kind, caring and compassionate person.

Too short

I can never get enough of Jo Brand. Unfortunately the book she is referencing is not available from Audible in the U.S. Still, the interview is worth a listen.
