Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are comedy writers JASON HAZELEY and JOEL MORRIS (Screenwipe, Bollocks To Alton Towers, Cunk on Britain, Ångström and the adult Ladybird books). In this bonus, more-postcards, more-laughs, extra-long episode we explore postcard messages as Trip Advisor reviews of your own life, rediscover postcards sent by musicians to their fans and learn about the world’s largest room. Plus a strange coincidence. Again. Wish you were here?
