David Harewood, a steak sandwich and fries

Listen on

Episode notes

Nick and Angela welcome another MBE to Dish HQ.

The incredible actor and author David Harewood brings some Hollywood to proceedings this week. Star of stage and screen, he has appeared in major TV shows like The Night Manager with Olivia Colman and Tom Hiddleston, Super Girl and the multi-award winning Homeland with Claire Danes and Damian Lewis. It is on stage, David says that he feels most at home, treading the boards in Othello and King Lear among others.

David’s outstanding memoir Maybe I Don’t Belong Here is out now in paperback. The book tracks his harrowing experience of psychosis in his early twenties and how he has made a full recovery and the lessons it taught him. 

Angela is a huge fan of David’s work and was delighted to cook his favourite dish, a steak sandwich with fries, washed down with an Elephant in the Room Pinot Noir.
