This has gone viral on the internet: Billy Bob Thornton, the Hollywood actor, was pissed off during a CBC-radio interview because his acting career was mentioned while he was there as a musician.
He then went on being erratic and eventually rude, while his host (Jian Ghomeshi, CBC Toronto, host of Q show) was progressing with the interview.
In today’s 16-minute episode I discuss Jian’s approach to dealing with an impolite guest during a live interview on national radio.
