Richard takes a break from the usual riff-raff to talk to the actual Mayor of London and one of the world's funniest politicians (low bar) Sadiq Kahn. They discuss the talking points from his new book Breathe about the efforts he has made to improve the air quality of our capital city: his personal reasons for getting interested and the moving and tragic story that anchored his commitment. Can we overcome apathy and cynicism to fight climate change? This positive book hopes so. They also discuss London beavers, why old tunnels have a bend in them, the terrible congestion charge website, a faux pas with Leonardo di Caprio and Sadiq's reaction to a serious health scare.
