For our 41st podcast Aoife and I got ourselves a better audio setup with two pro microphones (thanks to all who helped with that) and took a return aural trip to Canada via the Caribbean, Cambridge, Malmo, Manchester, LA and New York. Better equipment also means you can hear our dog Daffodil barking from downstairs throughout if you listen closely but I trust it won’t detract from these 13 songs, which are some of the finest I’ve heard over six weeks and collected together. Also, Bruce Willis makes an appearance. You’ll just have to listen.
