A year in podcasting
Can you believe it’s been a year since we started The Sugarcraft Junkies? Neither can we. In this episode we recap our lessons learned in the first year and how we went about starting the podcast, in case any of you fancy giving it a bash too. There LOADS of new stuff (at last!) and although the national lockdown continues, we have actually done a few news worthy things. Thanks for being with us on our first year, we hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have.
