Ade's taking a sabbatical from the podcast for a few weeks whilst the delights of lockdown living are forcing him to be on conference calls all day for work, so we're drafting in some help to keep Rachel and Graeme company whilst he's away, and this week it's in the form of the fabulous Clare Marie Bailey. 


It's a week for catching up on what we've all been up to, from Skype portrait sessions so pinhole pictures of street bingo!

Be sure to check out the #1212project on twitter, and Rachel's pinhole article here:
