It’s a return visit for friend-of-the-show Thomas Campbell this week who is, as I said last year, ‘one of surfing and skateboarding’s most important influences thanks to classic films such as The Seedling, and a singular aesthetic and approach that has an outsized influence on what it means to be creative in our world’.
Have a listen to our first episode below if you missed it first time around:
I think it’s fair to say myself and Thomas got on pretty well first time around, and we’ve stayed in touch over the months.
This redux episode came about after I asked him if he’d be up for taking part on one of my Open Threads, in which guests (such as the great Jeremy Jones, here) answer questions from listeners and readers.
Thomas was up for it, but asked if we could just do it as another conversation. Which I thought was a great idea, and is exactly what we ended up doing.
The result was yet another brilliantly entertaining, discursive chat about life, art, surfing, music, creativity and the rest of the good stuff.
Huge thanks to everybody who contributed questions for this one (you can see the original Thread with the listener questions here). I’d love to know what everybody thinks of this new format - let me know using that big old button below.
