    Another good one, John – and for the record, this one I even had to set up my MP3 player to record via streaming while I went out with the family for the afternoon. ‘Twas worth it!

    Will be switching to the podcast only from here on in (back to work), but I just wanted to let you know that I continue to enjoy the show.

  2. Adam says:

    That Adam C is quite a twat.

    I just finished listening to episode 3- it was epic. Epic enough to sit in my living room from midnight to 2 am listening. On a dial-up connection. That’s pretty bloody epic.

    Were you listening to it live, Sophie?

  5. sophiageffros14 says:

    The podcasts are being a jerk and won’t download, so I listened to it live through the miracle of the internet.

      Well it was lovely to have you listening! Should you be feeling the love (or insomnia) to listen live again, please email me at to say hello!

      The podcasts should now also be available on itunes, which may well be more reliable for downloads that the cpod site.
