Episode 50: The 50th Celebration Episode


To celebrate hitting 50 episodes we had a selection of numerous previous guests on to catch up and chat with. We also invited two of our most popular audience members, “Tobes” and “JW” to guest host with us and ask questions, and they were great. A longer and (much) less serious episode than usual, which was immense fun and a bit of a shambles. Enjoy.
