Show Notes

This week on The Lonely Arts Club, Martin McQuillan is joined by Geoff Beattie. 

A well known name and face in the world of psychology, many will recognise Geoff from primetime TV as one of the original psychologists on Channel 4's Big Brother. 

We go right back to the beginning with Geoff, as he delves into what his childhood was like growing up amidst the troubles in Belfast. Geoff recalls situations that many could only imagine and as he takes a trip down memory lane, we hear stories that are funny and some which are clearly difficult for Geoff to talk about. 

Now, a successful novelist and academic, Geoff is also a Professor of Psychology at Edge Hill University. 

This podcast is brought to you by the Institute for Creative Enterprise at Edge Hill University.
