Where Are You, Satish Patel?

Richard is delighted to be back in bankrupt Birmingham and in front of the third biggest crowd to ever come to RHLSTP. His guest is a man who has succeeded at everything he's attempted, the remarkable Adil Ray. They discuss what it was like growing up in an Asian family in Yardley in the 70s and 80s, how racists nearly killed Adil as a baby and starting school in Handsworth the day after the riots, how Citizen Khan came about, how does it feel sharing some of your heritage with Suella Braverman, which came first Lingo or Wordle and what it's like working with Judy Dench.
