The Joy Of Not Running December 29th, 2020

In a move that has surprised even me, I wrote a piece for Men’s Fitness Magazine. Yes really. It’s about the joy of not running (but only after you’ve been for a run, obviously). Do have a read if you like: Comedian Tiernan Douieb On The Joy Of Not Running


The Joy Of Not Running December 29th, 2020

Running should only be acceptable when fleeing or chasing something. Whirring your legs along for any other reason just seems pointless when it is easily one of the worst, most dull ways to exercise. For starters, you have to travel somewhere even if you have no other reason to go anywhere that day, which is […]


My Daughter sees me doing something I love November 5th, 2020

I’ve never really liked the term ‘freelance’ for my job situation. The etymology of the word comes from the early 1800s where mercenaries would happily just fight for whoever paid them the most, which isn’t really what I do. Not just because I pretend to have some vague personal morals – I still baulk at a job […]


Working Dads Blog November 5th, 2020

I’ve written another blog for WorkingDads.co.uk about podcasting and sausages. The headline plus picture looks suspicious which I entirely blame the editor James Miller for. Have a read at: https://www.workingdads.co.uk/daughter-working-dads-something-love/

The First Take Club September 3rd, 2020

Chuffed to have this little piece in Empire Magazine about watching Old Boy for the first time (the original not the ‘Josh Brolin isn’t Thanos so what’s the point?’ remake). You’ll have to buy it to read the whole thing, obvs but here is a sneak peek of the first few words and then a […]


Love work and love life and the balance will come easily January 23rd, 2020

The argument goes that there doesn’t need to be such a thing as a work-life balance because work is part of your life, which is a terrible argument. Eating is part of life but if you don’t have an eating-life balance you’d spend every second of your day scoffing your face and never go outside. […]


Won’t Somebody Please Think Of The Children? December 5th, 2019

About 10 minutes into the children’s show about politics I’ve been touring for the last year and a half, ask the children to vote to either spend £100 on getting a friend of ours a wheelchair for his broken leg, or use it to buy 50 mosquito nets for countries suffering with malaria. This exercise […]
