A Chinwag with Adam Kay
We were delighted to welcome Adam Kay as a guest on the podcast this week.
Adam Kay is a multi-award-winning writer, comedian and former doctor. His new book, Kay’s Anatomy: A Complete (and Completely Disgusting) Guide to the Human Body is out now and is a must for every classroom. It is a funny and informative organ-by-organ tour of the human body for those aged eight and upwards. Grab a copy here - https://amzn.to/3m7tElw
His last book, This is Going to Hurt, https://amzn.to/3oekN3l has sold over 2.5 million copies, been translated into 37 languages, and is the bestselling narrative non-fiction title of the decade, spending over a year at number one in the Sunday Times bestseller chart. It is soon to be a major comedy-drama for BBC/AMC starring Ben Whishaw. His follow-up, Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas, sold over 500,000 copies in the last three months of 2019, and his recent anthology Dear NHS was an instant Sunday Times number one, raising over £250,000 for charity.
We talk all about his new book, the success of This is going to Hurt and his time at school.

I love how he uses 'disgusting' to describe it, because let's be honest - there are parts of the human body that are pretty disgusting that children should be able to laugh about!! Great how the crucial facts are also interweaved :-)
