Ralph Moore interviewed Martin Gore over the phone on November 16, 2020 in order to discuss Martin's upcoming EP The Third Chimpanzee. They also discuss some well-known Depeche Mode remixes. Martin also reveals that he has been working on another project with someone, but won't reveal more than that just yet.

Ralph also transcribed a quote from the interview onto the site MixMag one week prior:

"I read that book ['The Rise and Fall of the Third Chimpanzee' by Jared Diamond] in the '90s and it just made sense because he was calling humans the third chimpanzee. Without making it blatantly obvious, I liked that it blurred the line between humans and monkeys. Because sometimes it doesn't seem like we’ve got very far! It all made sense to call it that, as the EP was made by one of the third chimpanzees. I worked on one track before it had a title. And I resynthesized my voice and it came back sounding not quite human and more like a primate – so I decided to call it 'Howler' as I know of howler monkeys. All of the tracks have an element that’s not quite human."

The episode was downloaded from WorldWideFM's website here, Martin's interview was cut from of the episode, converted to MP3, and uploaded below.
