Clarisse Loughrey (Journalist) / Jo Bevan (Desperate Journalist)
Wossup! This week we have a member of Desperate Journalist and an actual journalist whom I shall not refer to as "desperate". Clarisse Loughrey, is here! The Independent's Chief Film Critic, and occasional "substitute teacher" for the BBC's flagship movie show on 5Live (known as Wittertainment to those in the know) herself. I really enjoyed our chat. We talked about the current state of film journalism, its challenges, its rewards, and whether it can be considered a truly creative profession. Jo Bevan, vocalist with one of the finest bands in the U.K., Desperate Journalist, talks us through their phenomenal third album "In Search Of The Miraculous", via a the story of Dutch conceptualist. Growing up and childhood also ended up being a theme of the episode with Clarisse and Jo both sharing candid memories of the difficulties they experienced when they were young.
