Fascinating Listening...

Dr Anthony Clare's conversations with various public figures are an intriguing insight the individuals he interviews.
His professional skill in respectfully honing in on the essence of what makes these people 'tick' is akin to being in the audience at the theatre for a top notch dramatic play - the difference being it isn't fiction. Even if some of these celebrities are unknown to you, their stories will keep your interest.
