SARDisms 18 - Giles Paley-Phillips


After spending a significant time touring the UK’s music scene, Giles Paley-Phillips found a passion as an author when his first son was born. He's written several children's books and, upon having his own bout of writer's block, decided to start a podcast with his friend Jim Daly covering these exact kinds of moments with celebrities and well-known people. Crossing over the 100th episode mark, Giles and Jim have spoken to many influential people and they have used their podcast experiences to write a new book ‘Blank’ due out in April 2021.
