1947
Ian and Stobbie hit that well known milestone of the 15th episode... In this episode, the guys discuss the first week of Phase 1 of the route map out of lockdown.  Stobbie is then joined in the virtual studio by Jenni and Amy from PKAVS (and Positively PKAVS) to discuss how the charity has adapted to Lockdown.

Episode 12 - What Day Is It?? feat. Andy's Man Club Perth and The Isolation Arms

This was recorded last Tuesday, or as it is now known, Day.  During these strange times, we felt it was important to try to keep these episodes coming out - don't worry, we were at an anti-social distance and used Skype.

We also have Nicol Lumsden from the Perth branch of Andy's Man Club talking about what AMC are doing to help during this particularly trying time.  Finally, we have some music from Perthshire's hottest new online venue, The Isolation Arms, and a quick round up of some of the work being done locally.  We hope you enjoy it, if you want to send us a audio of your tips for getting through the lockdown, send it in to hello@fcpod.net or get in touch through the usual socials.
