DAISY BUCHANAN & OWEN HATHERLEY - That Donkey's Grandchildren Are Dead

Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are journalist, agony aunt, author and podcaster DAISY BUCHANAN (How To Be A Grown-Up, You're Booked, The Sisterhood, Guardian, Telegraph) and journalist and author OWEN HATHERLEY (The Ministry of Nostalgia, Militant Modernism, Landscapes of Communism, The Chaplin Machine). In this episode we bathe in colourful neon light in 1970s Poland, ride the gentler funfair rides at Margate Dreamland, get lost in Venice, learn the secrets of the Jilly Cooper Book Club, and sing a hymn to dusty postcard shops. Pack your bags and book your bed and breakfast - we're off for a relaxing fortnight of seaside jury duty. Wish you were here?
