We’re joined by Richard Osman for an excellent conversation about his fantastic new book The Thursday Murder Club, the perks of writing for septuagenarian characters, how his career in TV helped him as a writer, British politeness, why he can’t perform his favorite karaoke song anymore, and when it’s okay to root against quiz show contestants as the host. We also recommend: Nine Lives by Wendy Corsi Staub, East of Hounslow by Khurrum Rahman, and Ballistic Kiss by Richard Kadrey. Audiobook of the week is To Tell You the Truth by Gilly MacMillan. Plus- Dave’s sordid dogwalking encounter, Laura wants off the Covid roller coaster, and Andrew faces the hazards of reading with a face shield.
