But recently, they’ve been thinking: what does “normal” mean anyway? Ready your ears for behind-the-scenes Potter revelations; outrageous rants; frank conversations about mental health; and even the odd, ‘did-you-know?’ Stabl production (Formerly the Double Trouble podcast)

    This episode is a little bit different. This season we’ve been asking an amazing selection of guests what the word ‘normal’ means to them but in this episode we’re putting ourselves in the hot seats, and interviewing each other.
     
    Listen in to find out which one of us flashed airport security, what secrets we’re keeping from our parents and how we really feel about sharing a Wikipedia page.

    We’ll also be answering lots of your questions, so prepare to learn more about us than ever before.
     

    We want to hear from you. If you have a brilliant 'Did You Know?' fact, a question for us, a jingle you’ve written or a voice note you want to share, get in touch. We’ll choose a few messages and include them in the audio version of every podcast. You can tweet us your message using the hashtags #normalnotnormal and #didyouknow or email us at normalnotnormalpodcast@gmail.com

Amazing job!

I could hardly get into podcasts before this. But I've been learning so much about the world and how to look at things differently. While having informative content, it's still very positive and fun! ANYONE could listen to this and walk away with something of value. Oliver and James have really got a knack for entertaining.
