So, three years ago to the day almost, a bunch of us who met through critiquing each other's work on the Newsjack rejects forum on this very website met up for the first time to write some stuff together. A day later we had a podcast recorded.

One thing very quickly led to another and then, in the early hours of this morning UK time, we actually won an award!

Link to that very episode

So, what I'm basically getting at for you writer-types reading this, is: anything is possible and keep at it!

Just finished listening.

Some very funny sketches, good performances and some really good impersonations. Very polished all round.

Something I've missed out on in more ways than one. I need to give it a listen. Well done all.

Is anything still available?

Tickets are going quickly for this, btw. If you want one, but haven't yet got one, might be an idea to log on and book it asap.

We recorded this on Monday night and all went well in front of a fantastic full house at RADA Studios (the old Drill Hall). Thanks to everyone who came.

Provisionally broadcast dates are Christmas Day and New Year's Day on BFBS radio, with it available online soon afterwards.
