One-time Mumford & Sons banjo plucker Winston Marshall will launch a podcast with the Spectator in the New Year.
The musician’s downfall was sparked by a tweet in support of Andy Ngo’s divisive Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan To Destroy Democracy, calling it “important” and its author “a brave man”.
An internet storm ensued, with Winston Marshall telling Radio 4 that he’d received “a lot of very horrible negativity” over his tweet.
Subsequently departing from Mumford & Sons, Winston Aubrey Aladar deBalkan Marshall – whose father is a hedge fund manager worth in excess of £630 million – has clearly landed on his feet.
Yep, he’s got a gig at the Spectator; Winston Marshall will launch a podcast in the New Year, “interviewing people across the creative industries to find out what indeed is the state of the arts”.
As he puts it: “This is gonna be fun…”
Exciting personal news…
