John-Paul Flintoff




The Sound of Silence


How to do an interview without words? The Sound of Silence podcast invited me to try:

This episode’s guest is John Paul Flintoff. JP is a writer, mostly, who has written for lots of newspapers, magazines and five books, which he doesn’t want me to describe. He’s been quite unwell this year but is feeling much better. Recorded on a Thames beach near Blackfriars, London.


Steve Chapman, host of the podcast, conjured silence with 99 other people, including several who are well known. Take a look, here
