An Author Special with The One, The Only, The National Treasure: David Nicholls

Westminster rules in favour of gay marriage and abortion rights in Northern Ireland, former EDL leader Tommy Robinson is sentenced to 9 months in prison (and banned from YouTube), a man dressed in a gimp suit terrorises the people of Somerset, and a love letter from Tupac to Madonna is expected to fetch $300,000 at auction. Plus, how do YOU feel about Matt Hancock's plan to link up Alexa and the NHS? (Spoiler alert: Dolly doesn't like robots.) Today we have the man who has sold 8millionbooks, who possesses the most delicious voice you've ever heard (it even beats Philippe Sands), the one and only David Nicholls, on the show. The screenwriter of multiple hits such as Great Expectations and Patrick Melrose and the best-selling author of Starter for 10, The Understudy, One Day and Us, he is back with a new novel, Sweet Sorrow, about a teenage summer romance in the 80s. We talk about teenage love, parenting and being parented, writing, anxiety in the internet age andthattwist in One Day.

Meghan & Harry's Godparent Privacy Furore; And What Makes A True Eccentric?

Glasto's been and gone and the USA won the Women's World Cup - as the crowd began chanting "equal pay, equal pay." This week we cover the latest royal storm in a bone-china teacup, as Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex refuse to name the godparents of their newborn baby, Archie. Are the taxpayers entitled to this intel? Or is it time to stop seeing privacy, in our era of 360 surveillance, in black and white terms? We also take the BBC's eccentric quiz and discuss Will Self's riveting new documentary on what makes a true eccentric and how 'the eccentric' is oft commodified or misunderstood. Take the quiz and let us know - how eccentric are YOU? https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2xKy0KkffPNDywmxxC6qrkm/how-eccentric-are-you Donate to Broadwater Farm's summer play experiencehttps://justgiving.com/crowdfunding/broadwaterfarm E-mailthehighlowshow@gmail.com Tweet @thehighlowshow Links The Falconer, by Dana Czapnik The New Me, by Halle Butler Bitch, by Elizabeth Wurtzel Camilla Long on HRH Killjoy, for The Sunday Timeshttps://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/for-keeping-mum-about-archies-godparents-i-rechristen-the-peoples-prince-hrh-killjoy-qs87wlrz6 When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez met Greta Thunberg, for The Guardianhttps://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jun/29/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-met-greta-thunberg-hope-contagious-climate Pete Paphides' gorgeous Twitter thread on Glastonburyhttps://twitter.com/petepaphides/status/1145666196622254081 The Death of the Eccentric, hosted by Will Self for BBC Radio 4https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0006kt6 For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
