Ep. 285: A Fortunate Man

On this weeks show we're delighted to be joined by the mighty Steve Starr (better known by many as @stig_ofthedump) To talk about the book a Fortunate man from the 60's a work produced by writer John Berger and documentary photographer Jean Mohr detailing the life and practice of a local GP in a small village in the Forest of Dean, and how Steve used this as an inspiration to create his own book, not only for the subject matter, but also for the way the writing and pictures were used together to create a whole story.
