Richard talks to comedian, presenter and now novelist, Sara Pascoe about her fabulous debut novel Weirdo. They talk about the difficulties of writing a novel, the joy of when the character starts writing it for you, the unreliable narrator and a possibly unlikeable protagonist, plus all the paranoid and weird delusions that swim around in (presumably) all of our heads and how often they have an arrogance that presumes others are prepared to pay billions to keep up the pretence, how we stick in relationships that are no good for us, why trolls need to turn the light on themselves, whether you're being spied on by robot cats, if you have free will and much more.
