Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are writer and podcaster ANDY MILLER (Tilting At Windmills, The Year of Reading Dangerously) and music writer and drummer ZOE HOWE (Barbed Wire Kisses, Rock’n’Roll Gentleman, Shine On Marquee Moon). In this unusually discursive episode we explore the rise of the seaside mini golf course, discuss the postcard image as a replacement for a physical object, and Andy and Zoe discover a shared love of The Who. Wish you were here?

“Had our lunch in Ringwood but I was stung on my neck twice with a wasp. Harold grumbled at me all day.”
