This is one of our faves! The charming radio host of this isolated town has many stories and mysteries to share with you - a must listen!
Secret Dinosaur Cult
We won’t give too much away but all we will say is that Sophie Hagen and Jodie Mitchel are incredibly funny. You will laugh, talk about important issues and learn the names of many dinosaurs. If you’re a palaeontologist, you might be slightly disappointed though!
