Andrew Watts is fixated on Granville Sharp | Fixated Ep 9
Comedian Andrew Watts gets historical. I met up with Andrew before he dashed off to perform his critically-acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe show 'Feminism for chaps' to talk about his hero and a key figure in the abolition of the slave trade, Granville Sharp. Andrew and I discussed finding your true calling, why you should always keep the receipt, and why Abraham Lincoln isn't a patch on old Granny. And lots more!

The Lizzie McGuire Movie changed my life! Comedian Stephen Bailey is fixated on Hilary Duff and Zac Efron! | Fixated Ep 7
Stephen Bailey is a lovely comedian who you might recognise from Big Brother's Bit On The Side or from his numerous appearances at live comedy gigs around the UK. The topic of this episode is a little different from some of our geekier topics like Warhammer and Nintendo. Stephen talks to me about two people who have been big inspirations to him... Hilary Duff and Zac Efron! We discuss what I have in common with Mr Efron, how armpit hair can be attractive, being sick in a classy way and how the Lizzie McGuire Movie changed Stephen's life. We also talk about how we like the American positive attitude, how working at Sainsbury's can be better than comedy and how everyone should buy 'suspended coffees'. Who inspired Stephen to do his first comedy gig? What are the best Lucozade flavours? Find out in episode 7! WARNING! There are a shedload of Lizzie McGuire movie spoilers.

Comedian Nathaniel Metcalfe is fixated on Anthony Newley | Fixated Ep 6
Nathaniel Metcalfe is one of my favourite comedians. He's got a genuinely original and distinctive comedic voice and he is also the perfect guest for this podcast as he has a habit of being distracted by seemingly trivial things and then investigates them to a depth that few of us would. His debut show 'Enthusiast' is full of wonderfully niche observations told in an accessible and hilarious way, and can be seen in it's entirety on vimeo here. Nat can currently be heard on James Acaster's Findings on BBC Radio 4, and Josh Widdicombe's xfm radio show, so clearly Fixated was a big step up for him. In this episode Nathaniel talked to us about an oft-forgotten multi-talented media figure, Anthony Newley. We touch on all manner of subjects, from the Garbage Pail Kids movie, Deep Roy, Willa Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Ed Sheeran, Oliver Twist, Morrissey, David Bowie and what it means to be friends "in a Sixties way".
