We could not end the interview section for the Tears For Fears season better than with our final interviewee; Mr Ian Stanley - band member from the beginning and part of the key creative unit behind Songs From The Big Chair.
Chatting to Ian was a great thrill and we cover the early part of the decade here from initial meeting to working on The Hurting with diversions into the making of both Everybody Wants To Rule The World and Shout. *
Many thanks to Carole and, especially, David Bates who was instrumental in getting me the chat with Ian. And thanks to Ian for a brilliantly enjoyable conversation.
Enjoy (part 2 to follow soon) x
* still kicking myself that I didn't ask Ian why Shout didn't have the ! it clearly needed,,,
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
