The coronavirus versus self-employment!

I’m Stuart Goldsmith.  I interview the funniest people in the world, and ask them in depth about how they do it and how they cope with the challenges of a creative life.

I’ve spoken with over 330 comics; people like Jimmy Carr, Russell Brand, Stewart Lee, and Russell Howard.  It’s “absolutely riveting” (Guardian) and “recommended” listening (Ricky Gervais).

For the last five years the podcast has supplemented my income as a professional stand-up comedian, but in the wake of the global pandemic I’m reeling from the cancellation of my entire live diary.

The podcast is now my only source of income, so whether you’re a longtime listener or a new fan, please consider making today the day you support the show by subscribing to the INSIDERS CLUB
