Last night we launched their finished podcast at a celebration event with friends, family, local councillors and literary types. There was a harp player and canopes and we all enjoyed listening to a preview of their brilliant podcast.

Their podcast includes:

  • a book review of a new trilogy from Black and White Publishing (Jack Shian)
