Out to lunch

It’s a real pleasure when terhered to a desk retouching my photo shoots to turn on Jay’s podcast and sit in on what feels like a completely natural, enjoyable lunch conversation with interesting people. Best bit is I don’t have to join in the conversation or be witty back. Just relax and be transported there.

Earing Noises!!!

The range of guests is amazing but after listening to 90 seconds I have to turn off because of the sounds of eating.
