NPR – Ted Radio Hour: How Do Schools Kill Creativity?

I really enjoyed recording this interview for the recent TED Radio Hour on NPR on creativity. I’m particularly delighted that Dame Gillian Lynn is in the piece too retelling with me the story of her discovery as a child that she wasn’t ‘sick’, she was a dancer. The full program also features interviews with Sting, Elizabeth Gilbert and Charles Limb.

Interview: BBC’s Desert Island Discs


I was honored and delighted to be interviewed recently on the BBC’s Desert Island Discs, the longest running radio interview show in the world. Listen to the show, but also take a look round the Desert Island Discs website. It’s fascinating.
