    Funny story, guys, so Iately I’ve been catching up on podcast episodes on long walks I’ve been taking (because my knee and back are disliking jogging right now.) So, I started to listen to Flying Nun Week 2 episode 1 and about 5 minutes in I thought there’s no way to listen to this without listening to Flying Nun Week 1, so I went back and have listened through all ten episodes now. It was thoroughly enjoyable and educational (now my knowledge of New Zealand music goes beyond Split Enz). I found myself cooking and having my Echo stream The Clean and The Chills (the one band I had heard of, but had not spent much time with). So I just wanted to post some words of support about the episodes. Now to the Spotify playlists!
