Degree! Degree!

Richard is at the City Hall in steel obsessed Sheffield and his guest is proudly professional Yorkshireman and poet, Ian McMillan.

The conversation dances through Tupperware drum sets, performing with Luke Goss, Ian's parents' love story, being crushed to death by a grave stone, the best chemist in Darfield, being a poet in resident for a football club, cartoon dogging, where poetry comes from and whether sentimentality is a bad thing and how living in the same place helps keep your feet on the ground. Plus a live reading from the great man himself.
