Christmas memories

This is a charming series that is personal but also relatable. It’s funny, emotional and painstakingly truthful. I cannot imagine how much effort and time that went into this. Daniel is a very talented individual.

Honest, moving yet very funny

I look forward to revisiting this series every December. It was my gateway podcast to Daniel’s other work. I’m delighted I stumbled upon it. Take a listen.
