Buy Up in Smoke

Richard is joined by firefighter Leigh Hosy-Pickett to discuss his excellent, moving and funny book Up in Smoke, detailing his quarter of a century as a firefighter, the way that humour plays an important role in bringing a team together and coping with the horrors of the job, the way the fire service has changed over the last few decades, the sensitivity that is required in the job, the mental and physical anguish and how people don't think about fires or firefighters unless they are required. Plus important safety tips and Richard's experience of fire.

I forgot to thank Chris Evans (not that one). So thanks Chris Evans (not that one)
