sv podcast – “I have been in the whirlwind looking like a disco ball.”

Some Christmas cheer from Holly and Darren in December’s podcast. Come away in and warm yourself with their reviews and recommendations for the festive period. There’s a helpful list below of links from the podcast but we recommend a spoiler-free listen first!

And, for a treat, we finish with some beautiful music for Christmas – our traditional (we’ve featured it twice) helping of ‘Silent Night’, recorded specially for us by the fabulous Hannah Rarity.

The whole smallVOICE team wishes you a peaceful Christmas and a good new year. See you in 2024.
