Interviews

Jack Wippell on music, cults and losing his religion

I met Jack for our interview on the sixth-floor terrace of the shiny new Centre Building. It’s a peaceful bit of campus, with wildflower planters and plenty of sunshine.

Samir Patel talks to FLIPSIDE about getting hangovers and how to deal with them

Are you ready? I feel like I’m doing an interview for JP Morgan! How much did you drink last night? I wasn’t drinking too much, just the usual rum and coke and then I got dick of the day [from…
