Well done :)

Everything Definitely Human do is brilliant, and this is no different, despite its different subject matter. Good wholesome listening. Charlie’s mum is particularly awesome :)

Just so peaceful

I’m a Definitely Human fan anyway and I always love checking out any new podcasts you lot make, but Back to Earth especially is right up my alley. It’s reminiscent of Clarkson’s Farm but more genuine, and I’m basically aching with jealousy that I’m not in Devon right now on my own farm…
Especially fond of the chicken updates, and Charlie’s mum is a star!

Exactly what we need right now!

I just love how informative, real and natural each episode is, it really makes you feel you were there, back to earth with them. It’s peaceful and absolutely delightful to listen to. It’s like you got hooked on a book and can’t wait to find out what it brings in the next chapter. Highly recommend!
