Just went back through the archives and listened to this - a brilliant interview with very astute and interesting insights into Englishness.

I'm not surprised Mr Phillips has moved to NYC. There are no UK media that would broadcast this kind of serious interview or take an interest in thinking of his profundity.

WNYC is a marvel, frankly.
