Sofie talks to baker, blogger and soon-to-be-podcaster, former The Great British Bake Off contestant Rav Bansal about GBBO and being watched by 30 million people, managing the post-filming panic, the opinions that came with the eyes on him, being a brown person wearing a turban in a show with 'British' in the title, e-warriors, triumph in baking, Paul Hollywood, life after Bake Off, celebrating a more diverse face of food, Jamie Oliver's School Dinners, Bake Off's worldwide reach, empty promises and not relying on other people, social anxiety and public speaking, the difference between a hobby and a career and the snobbery of the food industry.
