Episode 243: Good Listens & Fairy Lights

Show Notes

It's the last episode of the horror show that has been 2020 and Vicky and Joe are slacking. You know those episodes of Star Trek where they do a flashback thing so they don't have to write an actual episode? This is a bit like that: a roundup of our favourite podcasts. It's our Christmas gift to you: the gift of new shows and stories to enjoy. There's glitter, there's hot chocolate, there's sequins... and our usual 100% professional delivery. Enjoy!
