It was lovely to be invited on to this Radio 4 panel game about the world of quotations, which has been running since about 1843.
It seems at first glance a good fit for me: it’s a quiz about what famous people said and wrote (I studied literature), it’s gently amusing, rather than competitively comedic (I’m not a stand-up), and it’s resolutely aimed at middle England (I sound like the sort of guy you’d meet in a garden centre). But I'm really not the sort of guy who don’t retain quotes! So I thought I'd really struggle. In the end, I think I did... ok. But it was really great to meet my fellow panelists, especially two women I massively admire, Joanna Scanlan and newsreading legend Charlotte Green.
