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.

Superb listening

You don't get quality like Anthony Clare any more - God rest his soul. This is top drawer listening for anyone interested in what makes us all tick. Clare is gently probing and unearths great insight and candour from his guests. A master of his craft, and a delight to listen to.
