“#MyStory is about communication. I’ve always enjoyed talking to other people, connecting with other people, hearing what they’ve got to say and how they say it.” —Lauren Laverne (@laurenlaverne), broadcaster and co-founder of The Pool (@thepooluk) in London.
“Radio’s so old-fashioned today in some ways, but actually, in a lot of ways, it’s very modern. Radio is so very intimate. You’re right in somebody’s ear. That’s why it’s magical. It’s not like television — it’s not really like anything else.
My advice to my 18-year-old self: never wear colored leather. Never, ever date anyone who’s rude to a taxi driver or a waitress. Don’t be friends with people who are not kind. And hang in there, it’s going to be OK. This is not as good as it gets.”
