Chapter Two: Pressed up Against The Window of What They Haven’t Got

Who is Greg?
Greg, perhaps better known as Twitter’s @themanwhofell, has also published two books: A Year In The Life Of The Man Who Fell Asleep, a novel based around various pieces from his website; and London Tales (or Tube Tales, as I wrongly name it in my introduction), a picaresque, fragmented graphic novel which is also that most Victorian-sounding of things: a privately published book. He has also recently started posting short stories onto his Facebook page, one of which you can hear him read at the end of the podcast.
Twitter – a ‘social network’ website/mocroblog where anyone is allowed to open an account and post updates of 140 characters or less.
Masterchef – a cookery-based reality show.
Should have said in last week’s episode: thank you to BinaryDad for letting me tinker about with his chaoscillator, thus providing the show’s ‘theme tune’.
