Today on this bonus episode for books that I’m recommending for Christmas, we have Radio 1 DJ Chris Stark, co-host of the award winning “That Peter Crouch Podcast“ with millions of listeners and now author of the new student cookbook initially titled “Eat Sleep Rave Reheat” and now changed to “Eat Sleep Zoom” .. for obvious reasons.
We chat about Chris’ humble beginnings in hospital radio, his passion for the platform, spreading humour and of course THAT famous 5 minute interview with Mila Kunis that introduced him to the world stage of A-list celebritydom, plus how his latest podcast has led him all the way to hanging out with Prince William at Kensington palace.
We also talk about his future plans, following your dreams and the importance of being your most authentic self.

Chris Stark has had a long standing interest in radio, starting in hospital radio at the age of 16, along the way gaining as much work experience as he could at stations including Galaxy, Real Radio, Virgin Radio and BBC 6 Music. At 18 Chris started at Southampton University where he was given his own show on the student radio station ‘Surge’. It was here Chris Stark started getting known for the stunts that would later become daily features on Radio 1. Chris Stark is also an accomplished club DJ, something he has done from the age of 15. It was during his time DJing as a resident DJ at Southampton Uni’s main Friday night that he met Scott Mills, their friendship leading Scott to get Chris more and more involved in his radio show.
