This week we are back to talk all things Bad Actors! I’m pleased to welcome Slate Book and Culture critic Laura Miller.
In the first half of the show we stay spoiler free of Bad Actors as we talk about the ins and outs of reading, the Slough House audiobooks and Jackson Lamb’s secrets. In the second half we discuss all the crazy action the slow horses get up to with evil politicians, soccer hooligans, and shady Russians. Plus … River! All that and more in this episode!
