    1. Me too – so keen to get out there and do something that I KNOW is real! We all joke how Philosophy is such a terrible degree, really not a vocational course at all. Studying at Exeter which is lots of fun – very much Analytic Philosophy. We’re studying Transhumanism this term, which at first was pretty spooky but it’s actually super duper interesting! My dissertation will be a laugh, though – Schopenhauer on normative ethics. Gripping stuff.

  1. Charlotte! It’s Philip from the Blanks. Hey I just read your interview of us (“Firing Blanks”) and may I just say you smashed it. I think that means “really good”. Even though you gave some of my funny lines to Sam.
    But the point is, I thought the interview was fun and excellent and it’s obvious you have wonderful comedic timing. Now, was that you who came up to us in the bar the other day and introduced yourself so personably? If so, I hadn’t read the review yet, so please excuse me if I didn’t gush as much as I would’ve, in retrospect, liked to. Cheers – Philip

    1. Hi Philip – yes, that was me, and please don’t worry about gushing! I’m just glad you enjoyed the piece, I had a lot of fun writing it (and talking to you both, of course). Hope the show is going well thus far and I’m sure I’ll bump into you guys again at some point over the next few weeks! x
