My phone and my cat.

That Boris Johnson would become prime minister.
What TV show have you binge watched this year?

What annoys you most about your commute?
Trying to get on the Central Line at St Paul's, in the height of summer.
If you could witness one past event, what would it be?
Billie Jean King beating Bobby Riggs in the ‘Battle of the Sexes' match. Not only do I love tennis, she played the match to fight for the rights of women's tennis, not just to win the money or prove a point.
