No podcast this week

Sorry all.

The night we were due to record, I was in absolute agony after having managed to get some sort of debris into my left eye, which promptly scratched the cornea. Don’t know if you’ve ever had a scratched cornea, but let me assure you, it ain’t much fun!

All good now, though. Back next week.

Cheers.
