  • Love the pod ✨

    I’m a Northerner from Bratford who moved to London too. I love this podcast, it’s so fun and I look forward to it every week! In February I’ll be going to a second live recording. Something quite lovely about all the northerners in London coming together in one room to hear bizarre stories from the magical north. Keep up the pod ✨
