Alexei Sayle's got a podcast and also does lockdown bicycle rides! What joy. He was on Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast recently.

A E Kennedy's marvellous illustrations also added to my childhood unease. Perfectly innocent, there was something very slightly off which enhanced the delicious thrill of reading.
