Podcast – Adam Buxton and Billy Connolly

One thing that being on lockdown has allowed me to do is to listen to a lot more podcasts than usual. Adam Buxton’s podcasts are all brilliant, but this one I thought was especially great. Equal parts laugh out loud funny and poignant given Billy’s condition now (with Parkinson’s disease).

One thing that struck me about this podcast was that Billy seemed more at ease and ‘himself’ than he usually is during interviews where he puts on the showman persona. Maybe it’s because of Adam’s interviewing style, maybe he’s older, maybe it’s his condition. Whatever it is, it’s the best interview I’ve ever heard with him. Well worth an hour of your time.
