The latest episode of The Interloper's Guide is out today with Harvey Wells, Kevin Acott and Alban Low. 20 minutes of music and spoken vignettes.

Alban talks about my grandfather who worked with the Sudan Defence Force in 1929, and was hit by a canon shot loaded with nails and bed casters. He was a very keen linguist and during his convalescence in the UK studied languages at SOAS. He went on to be the liaison officer and interpreter for King Faisal II of Iraq at George VI's Coronation in 1937.
