BattenburgL ,

Delighted this is back!

Love the show.

Bummer100 ,

Just the tonic I was looking for!

Lovely, silly stories about the silly, lovely things we do. I was desperately looking through my library for a podcast that wasn’t about Covid, Lockdown, Recession, Mental Health, Climate Breakdown or Living My Best Life. I was so happy to come across this gem - I laughed lots and lots and it felt great!

bettymaisy ,

such a treat!

i absolutely adore this podcast and have done for years - i relisten to it in the evening every time i feel anxious about a big day so it was such a help during the past few years of exam results! the new series is absolutely gorgeous and have binged the first three in one go - had me giggling like a maniac at work. just the loveliest podcast out there, thank you so much isy - so glad it’s back!
