‘Embrace your inner idiot, switch off your brain, go for it - and attack’
With zero experience of beer-making, Tommy Barnes quit his safe, corporate London job to start his own beer business. As if that weren’t precarious enough, he located it in the Loire Valley - the heart of French ‘wine country’.
In this entertaining conversation with Olly, Tommy recounts how he’s followed his business dreams, balanced the books and perfected his beer recipe - even in the face of en masse Gallic shrug…
Elsewhere, in this month’s Zeitgeist, Ollie Peart prizes open his motherboard with a cheap screwdriver. Can he reboot his broken iPhone 4S, single-handed? Can the online fix-it community come to his aid? Or will this challenge go the way of his short-lived kefir concoctions?
Meanwhile, down the Foxhole, Alix Fox advises a couple of lady listeners with cancer diagnoses how to recover their mojo post-chemotherapy.
Plus, Alix investigates the world of squirting records, in particular the work of ‘super soaker’ Lola Jean. It’s nothing if not varied.
