Absolutely Brilliant

I happened to come across a Tweet sent to me by a follower who knew my love for the Spice Girls, and Victoria Beckham in particular, alerting me to this new Podcast by Sinéad Burke.
I had known of Sinéad through media and was intrigued to hear her story.
Episode one didn’t disappoint. Her vocabulary and relaxed presentation made listening a joy and I am now happy to say I’m hooked.
I eagerly await future episodes and highly recommend you do also. Xx
