I've been continuing to pick through the archives of Chain Reaction on the BBC radio iPlayer recently - the interview series where the interviewee of one week becomes the interviewer the next, and picks their own interviewee - and thoroughly enjoying them.
One of the best ones I've listened to is one from a few years ago involving Graham Linehan (of Father Ted, Big Train and IT Crowd fame, among others), and Adam Buxton, erstwhile writing partner of Joe Cornish on the Adam & Joe show on Channel 4 and their 6music radio show. I like both of them and their work a lot, and hearing them chat was really interesting and illuminating.
It talks about their working methods (including quite candidly about how Linehan's working relationship with Father Ted writing partner Arthur Matthews eventually broke down, and about how Adam and Joe's writing relationship worked), how it can be difficult to find inspiration, how the creative process works, Adam's feelings about Joe Cornish going on to Hollywood success (again, quite candidly, if half-joking a lot of the time), professional jealousy, the effect of social media on their work, and loads more. It really is quite an unusually open and interesting conversation.
You can listen to the whole thing here if you're interested:
(Interestingly I just found out that the two are currently collaborating on a project for Channel 4.)
Oh, and the archives of Chain Reaction are well worth raiding, not least for great stuff like this chat between Stewart Lee and Alan Moore (I know I've mentioned it before, but it's worth posting again):
