The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett
From his recent global TikTok fame to his BAFTA award-winning documentaries Louis Theroux has delighted audiences and grown a cult following with his distinctive brand of personality. Best know for his documentary series ‘Weird Weekends’, and ‘When Louis Met……’ Louis has explored the most controversial subjects with wide eyed curiosity and openness. In this conversation Louis discusses how his childhood and upbringing affected his career, channeling his anxiety and social awkwardness into his work of exploring the darker aspects of human psychology and behaviour. He also talks about how his work has evolved and grown, from his initial big break in America to his new series of celebrity interviews, and how he has had to balance this with his family life. Just like with his documentaries, in this episode Louis brings his trademark honesty and openness Topics: Early context Your early relationship with work Affection What is your dark-side Struggling to connect with people Feeling anxious doing new things Your new series Conforming vs being disruptive Feeling like an imposter Are you now aware of what people saw in you?

This week’s guest is Louis Theroux – the godfather of the immersive documentary.

In this episode, he talks to Kelly-Anne Taylor about how he wanted to be a sit-com writer, his guilty-secret of watching his own documentaries and why lockdown, and spending more time with his family, has changed his outlook on life.

Theroux is best known for his documentary series, including Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends, When Louis Met..., and many BBC specials, including most recently his series Altered States. His career started in journalism and it bears the influences of notable writers in his family, such as his father Paul and his brother Marcel. The BBC has produced all of his documentaries and television series. He has received two British Academy Television Awards and a Royal Television Society Television Award for his work. 2017 saw the release of Louis' first feature film 'My Scientology Movie' Giles and Jim met up with Louis down at Nordic Bar just after Christmas while Louis was taking a break from writing his new autobiography.

Jim tells Louis about the time he nearly got sued for libel and we find out why Blankness is ever-present in Louis' life.
