A long while ago (May last year) we recorded a podcast. However, due to various obstacles last year, it sat on my hard-drive for a long time before I had the time to look at it. Over the holiday period I decided to edit it, and put it up. Let us know if you enjoy it and if you have any feedback, as we may well do some more!
The sound quality and editing isn't excellent, and the content is a bit out of date (we talk about Father's Day coming up), so we're considering this a pilot of sorts.
