Some Reflections on Podcasting

It’s nearly a year since I produced my first podcast and since then I’ve produced another 19. A few thoughts so far. As I reflect on the podcasts I’ve done so far, I know that the quality has been variable! Not just the actual audio quality, which has improved as I’ve got a better microphone […]

The Missing Photograph’s Companion

Back in May I talked about trying to find an old photo that was taken of the Troop in January 1926 (as I now know). We had a vague photo of it and that was all.   It was taken to be presented to the Church’s Vicar, Fr. Nash, who was moving to a new […]
