Welcome to December, listeners, as the halloween, bonfires, seasons of thanks slip from our memories, we urge you to remember to please SUBSCRIBE to our grid-grinding gabbling on iTunes/Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Acast, or any podcatching app/program using this RSS feed. Feedback and comments are welcome, either here, on Twitter on via your pod program of choice. I know it’s tedious for you when we keep banging on about it, but honestly, an Apple Podcasts review, or some rating stars on any site, or just a share to a friend who you think will like us can really mean a lot to us, so… yes please. Ta!
