Binge-podcasting!

This podcast is really amazing! Not only do the girls know what they’re talking about, their guests and topics are really interesting AND they really have the best podcast voice (and let’s be honest here, this can make or break a show!). Keep rocking in style ladies!!!

Never miss it!

I've listened to this podcast for some time and it's still my favourite.

Even if I think the topic doesn't sound that interesting, most of the time it ends up being fascinating.

It goes to show how the presenters have a great ability to pick out the stories that take it beyond the items themselves to explore social history, personal stories and lost skills.

The production is top notch and every episode is so well researched. April and Cassidy are also just a pleasure to listen to.
