    This is a great interview! Thanks Chris!

    I am a huge Fan of the SONS, so thanx for bringing Hunnam in.

    But besides him being in the show, what a terrific interview, so interesting and real.

    Thanx guys, this is a real treat.

    That was freakin awesome!!! I was really expecting at least some mention of QasF, especially given what Charlie said about his father. Growing up with that type of dynamic, I would love to know what the reaction was to his taking on that role. So, slightly disappointed there was none of that, buuuuuut, over all, that was a blast. Loved it. Great job Mr Hardwick. Well done. Embrace your tiny Donkey.. .

  5. David says:

    Great interview.
    I’ve noticed a lot of people in the North East of England look like vikings. Maybe a remnant from the days of the Danelaw. Could explain the Scandivnavian intonation in the accent too.
    All power to Charlie for taking on the burglar scum and defending himself and his home. I just hope the law’s more sensible over there and doesn’t victimise innocent people who defend themselves.

  6. Paul M says:

    His description of the city is pretty accurate although his story of the doors sounds more like the late eighties to early ninety’s to me. The last coal mine in the city closed in December 85 and the last ship yard  in the early ninety’s. The heavy industry and the manufacturing base began closing down from the late seventy’s all the way to the early ninety’s. The city has changed a great deal but the west end is still the west end  and the Bigg market is still the Bigg market, Charlie visited the city a year or so before this podcast. I know because I met him a genuinely nice guy by the way and my report of the city and its decline is genuine. As I worked at the last coal mine in the city to close down but there where still others in the surrounding are such as bates and Ellington to name but two,  As a Lemington lad himself he knows what he is talking about  and while you may question his recollection you can not question his veracity I feel.
