Listen: Richard Thompson Interviews with NPR’s World Cafe

We’re charmed by this career-spanning interview between British folk-rock legend Richard Thompson and World Café host Talia Schlanger. They talk about the days of Richard and Linda Thompson, naughty cupcake metaphors, practicing Sufism in 2018, running scales to The Big Bang Theory, composing Playboy playlists, and covering Britney Spears. Give it a listen, and see Richard perform his show about World War I at Big Ears 2019.
