High Fidelity with Alan Maguire
Listen now
What came first, the music or the misery? We invite podcaster Alan Maguire on to talk about Nick Hornby's classic High Fidelity, discussing relationships, break-ups, Jack Black's animal magnetism, performing your relationship for other people, the world of record shops, the biting insight that still makes us cringe in recognition, and whether we can cancel Rob in good faith when he's trying so hard to be less objectively awful. Produced by Caroline O'Donoghue, artwork by Gavin Day, music by Harry Harris, mixed by Hannah Varrall. Recorded at Tall Tales Studios in Dublin.
