Funtimes5000 ,

Great first episode!

Loved this first episode and will definitely be back for more. Fascinating insights and great rapport between the two presenters. Just the right balance of facts, humour and chat. Sooooo much more professional than a lot of podcast first and good to know I’m not the only writer who has fallen down some odd rabbit holes, always picture myself in court saying to the judge “but your honour…it was all just research!!”
