Our special guest is:
David Baddiel, British comedian, novelist and television presenter. Along with comedian Frank Skinner he pair created, wrote and performed Fantasy Football League, a popular entertainment show based on the growing fantasy football craze. The pair co-wrote the song ‘Three Lions’ which has been described as the de facto “anthem” of English football since 1996. In his recent documentary, Confronting Holocaust Denial, aired on BBC 2 in February 2020, Baddiel comes face to face Irish artist Dermot Mulqueen in order to shed light on widespread Holocaust denial.
