    S2 EP8 Season 2 Round-Up

    S2 EP8 Season 2 Round-Up

    Well, well, well, that’s the end of Season 2! This is our last episode in the season, we look back on the season and have a natter, with a special guest appearance from Katie W’s cat, Shelby. This season has really been wonderful to produce and we chatted to so many brilliant guests, so thank you so much to everyone involved and to everyone who has listened and shared.

    Lasting thoughts: it's okay to take breaks and it's okay to go at your own pace. We'll be back with Season 3 later on but make sure you follow us on Twitter, Instagram and newsletter to keep up with the natter. We're still going to be celebrating local journalism and proving you don't need to move down south to be successful in the media industry.
