The Big Lunch - The Art of Conversation with Iain Lee
The Big Lunch
Elis James and psychotherapist Lucy Beresford speak with Iain Lee over crisps and dips. As research conducted by The Big Lunch finds that one in five people have gone more than a fortnight without a face-to-face conversation with someone outside their household, Iain shares his go-to conversation ice breakers, as well as revealing why honesty is the most important thing to him in a chat, whilst Lucy explains the health benefits of talking face-to-face with someone, ready for us to take on board once current social distancing measures are relaxed. Join in with The Big Virtual Lunch (6-7 June) by visiting thebiglunch.comPlease note, this podcast was recorded before the UK went into lockdown.
Iain prefers Street Hawk over Knight Rider, likes Blue Thunder more than Airwolf, he isn’t a fan of 80s music and he once tried to write a text adventure about The Monkees. I also confess something about 80s music too.
