Any other business

  • Podcrawl Glasgow 2017

    The annual Podcrawl Glasgow will take place on Saturday July 29th at 6pm, starting in The State Bar, Holland Street, Glasgow ... and going on to who knows where!

    See Kevie's blog for the details.

    We hope to see some HPR listeners and contributors there!

  • UK Table Kit

    From @timttmy:

    Could you mention on the community news that I still have the HPR table kit and if anyone needs it to let me know via the mailing list. Sadly I won't be able to make oggcamp this year and I'm a more than a little gutted as this will be the first time I've missed the event. I hope somebody can represent HPR this year but I've not heard any chatter of excitement about it on the interwebs from anyone yet.

You said it half-jokingly, but my idea is that every post in is a full and earnest public commitment to making that episode real, any year now!

It's a while ago now and my memory is not what it was, but I think we were marvelling at your preparedness to go public with your plans. I for one am looking forward to hearing these episodes - no joke!
