Today I put together look back at some of the best stories of 2019 from various episodes. Believe me this was a hard thing to do as I love them all (otherwise why would I do the podcast?). I hope you enjoy this as much as I do and hey, if you missed one of these episodes and want to hear more the whole back catalogue is available on our website, Spotify, iTunes or almost every pod-catching device out there.

We own the rights to the music for this podcast but we would still like to thank Kevin MacLeod from incompetech.com for the music as I think it adds a lot to our podcast. Thanks, Kevin.
