Recording this social history, chatting to different people about a whole host of subjects is a real pleasure, such an interesting and I think worthwhile project for people to listen to both now and in years to come.

You know what it’s like, everything costs money!

If you feel like you could make a donation of any size to help me I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.
