Three hearts full of love

What has three hearts, eight legs and swings from the trees? Why, Bill the Jungle Octopus of course – eponymous hero of the debut children’s book by one of my guests on today’s show. Angela Pink, an animal lover from Chelmsford, came into the studio to give us a snippet from her book, talk about how the idea came about (not in the way you might expect) and even faced a grilling from my Octopus Quiz…

Listen back to my chat with Ange below:


You can find out more about her book here. 

Also on the show we talked about the upcoming Essex Pride festival, hitting Central Park in Chelmsford on Saturday 16th June. Saski, this year’s host, gave us a preview of some of the acts we can expect, how to get tickets, and why she thinks Pride is so important in the local community.

If you want to listen back to my phone interview with Saski, that’s below:
