Episode 134: Beer, France and Burt Reynolds with Tommy Barnes

Episode 134: Beer, France and Burt Reynolds with Tommy Barnes

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

The Scummy Mummies Podcast

Tuesday, 18 September

Our guest for this episode is the brilliant Tommy Barnes, author of the hilarious new book A Beer in the Loire!


He tells us all about how he and his wife decided to pack in the rat race, move to France, have a baby, and set up a brewery, all within a ludicrously short space of time. We find out what it's like living with a dog who wants to murder you, and Tommy recalls the time Derek Acorah tried to communicate with his dead pet frog, Burt Reynolds. There's also a live beer tasting and a stupid game.


A Beer in the Loire is out now, and it's one of the funniest books we've ever read. You can follow Barnes on Instagram @brasloubiere and Twitter @tommybarnes1977.
