Things got serious when we sat down to record The Riff Raff Podcast with Adam Kay. Then they were hilarious. They briefly got serious again, but mostly we just laughed our way through episode 39 as we discussed Adam's bestselling debut novel, This Is Going To Hurt.
For an episode that lasts just 40 minutes we covered a lot: how writing can work as therapy; ways to shake up the diary format; which stories to choose for your novel when you have a thousand to choose from, and how to find comedy in tragedy.
But as you'll hear, the main takeaways were this: make sure you care. If you're not sure what we mean by that, there's only one way to find out: stick on your headphones, tune in and please excuse our honks of laughter throughout.
