For this edition we migrated to the upstairs lounge at The Hope pub in London’s West End. As before, we turned on the microphones and let it roll from there. But be warned, this ‘pubcast’ contains some very strong language, the occasional sound of traffic from the street below, the shuffling of feet under the table and the odd slurp of an alcoholic beverage or two.
