Whist on lock-down because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Ian Farrar wanted to create something special for the listeners.

Ian live streamed (Facebook, YouTube & Twitter) for six hours on the 15th April 2020 and interviewed 12 of his friends back to back!

We have edited those videos and created bonus podcast episodes.

The original videos can be watched again on the respective social media platforms.
