The Fringe of It

#57 Catching Breath, Crying and Existing

This week is a catching up episode after last weeks break. We talk about our Instagram live we did where we mostly spoke about our favourite crisp flavour for some reason. We chat about some interesting family members, meeting The Beatles and working on The Thunderbirds. Also we get you up to date with everything we have been watching in our usual Telly Talk. Next week our topic is Funny Quarantine Tales, so do get in touch and let us know via a voice note or a plain old email what’s been happening on the funnier side of Quarantine.
