The Fire Escape
About This Show
Welcome to The Fire Escape. We are two guys from Alabama and a Welsh-Londoner talking transatlanticism, telling stories and whinging about life in the big city. We hope to highlight unique voices and stories, connect people, talk about the cultural similarities and differences of being Alabamian/Southern vs. Welsh/British, and how living in a place like NYC can enhance or erode those identities.Read more »

36. On Birds & Bourdain
6 days ago
Up top, we can't ignore the lovely song of the birds in the background of Hywel's recording space, and attic in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
Hywel recounts his quick trip to Ibiza last week, and we forgive him (sort of) for missing last week.
We take a more serious tone than usual this week as we get in to the death of Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain was an inspiration to all of us here at Fire Escape Enterprises, and we would like to do our best to be as empathetic and curious as he was and encourage you to do the same.
We talk at length about mental health and our experiences with it, and want to encourage anyone who wants to talk to us about it to reach out if you are up for it.
Take care of yourselves and each other, y'all.Read more »
