Ep. 183: A Christmas Miracle

A day (or two) late, but here for your festive ears nonetheless, it's the Sunny 16 Christmas episode! This show has it all! OK, maybe not ALL, but it does have Ade developing his first ever roll of film, a look at all the great prints sent in for the Ilford Paper competition and the picking of a winner, AND Christmas presents!

It's like a whole Christmas dinner in one podcast!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to Everyone, love and seasonally appropriate hugs from Rachel, Ade and Graeme

Ep. 182: Male Voice Choir

It's that time of the year for one of our favourite Seasonal traditions; the gathering together of three of the finest wise men of the web to look back over 2019, chat about the year that was and speculate on the year to come. Our three wise men are of course EM from, Hamish Gill from, and Bellamy Hunt from


Sadly no Rachel this week, just us Graeme and Ade in the mix, so good luck trying to pick out which British middle class voice is which! To help, if you hear someone risking life and limb in busy traffic, it's EM, if you hear someone making Sausage rolls it's Bellamy, and if you hear someone who sounds like they've just woken up...well, that could be Ade or Hamish!
