Listening to this all day is the best thing about wfh.
I’m really enjoying listening to this whilst reading James’ book alongside it. The podcast makes me laugh every time but also lovely to hear about music I would never know about otherwise.
Easy to listen to, fun and a tonic for the soul 😍
Great podcast - just what I needed to reignite my love for music 💛
