I was interviewed by Graham Seaman of BBC Wiltshire on Wednesday, 18 February 2015, and the slightly edited interview was broadcast on Graham's lunchtime program the next day, 19/02/2015, at 12-2pm GMT/WET. This is the web page for this show:
You can listen to the program for 29 days following the broadcast date.
Graham begins the afternoon by mentioning autodidacticism as one of his topics for the day (05:30), deliberately mispronouncing the word, promising to practice to get it right. He announces the topic again (11:13): self-teaching has been a topic discussed during the week; this time he mentions me as the person who will be interviewed. Graham announces the topic of autodidacticism at 26:30, deliberately stumbling over the word again. A song follows.
He announces his interview with me (30:53); the interview follows (up to 35:14), with some final remarks by Graham (up to 35:55). Graham asks his audience for their own experiences of self-teaching at 39:00-40:10.
The mp3 sound file linked below covers the introduction + our conversation (30:53-35:14 from the original program):
