One of the cool parts about working in radio is the opportunity to talk to interesting people.

Whenever actors, athletes, or musicians have something to promote, they need to use anyone with a microphone to get the word out.

And, like many of the relationships I've had, I wilfully allow myself to be used for just a few moments of time from someone I admire.

For the first edition of this new feature, I talked to Steve Coogan. Comedy fans, specifically those who enjoy British comedy, know Steve as Alan Partridge,  and from a million other roles. Stateside, he's been in a ton of movies as well.

We talk about British actors and comedians trying to break through to the American market, old rock n' roll roadies, Netflix, and his new film Philomena.
