12: Pete Tong x Dan Smith

12 Questions

The 12th and final episode and what a finale this is. I am joined by the global ambassador for dance music; Pete Tong MBE, and the nicest man in show business; Dan Smith, lead singer of Bastille. Dan had already answered the question “What’s In A Name” on the 12 Questions album but in this episode he answers ‘Do We Really Care?’ by discussing public opinion, songwriting over zoom and whether the power of positivity can help save the planet. Pete offers insight into what it's like to have your name turned into cockney rhyming slang and he also reveals his record for how many shows he has performed in one night. I have absolutely loved having these conversations with so many household names and I really hope you've enjoyed listening to the answers that have been given by my incredible guests. Huge thanks to everyone that has taken part in the series and to you also for listening. Stay tuned! Listen to the 12 Questions album here: https://platoon.lnk.to/12-questions
