We tackle some controversial topics in this episode with the help of the brilliant journalist, presenter and telly producer, Simon London! He tells us about being adopted at the age of eight, and what it was like to go from a children's home to boarding school. We hear about some of the racism he's faced over the course of his life, and the advice he's giving his son about growing up as a mixed race child. The conversation covers everything from knife crime and Raoul Moat to Fanta-based cocktails and photocopying your own tits. We also hear about Simon's time on telly shows like So Graham Norton, and he reveals the best and worst celebrities he's worked with. You can follow Simon on Instagram and Twitter @slondonuk. And do check out his brilliant website about family days out in London, kidrated.com. WE ARE COMING TO EDINBURGH! Come and see us, 7.50pm at the Assembly Rooms, 1-25 August (not 12th).
