    Day 25 - Merry Christmas! I got so excited when talking about today's Star Trek: The Next Generation episode that I forgot to give a summary of what happens in the episode. Ah well, you can always go and watch it (and I strongly encourage you to do so as it's one of my absolute favourites)!

So positive and comforting

I’ve really enjoyed both the first two episodes of this podcast, the second even more than the first. Emma talks naturally about gentle inspiration and her working life. Definitely to be recommended if current events are getting you down.
