If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the information on Covid 19 in the news then maybe don’t listen to this one but we felt we had to have a chat about whats going on as its such a crazy and unprecedented event that is affecting all of us worldwide. Some of it is homebrewing related, a lot of it isn’t but we did this off the cuff and thats what we ended up with, please bear in mind we recorded this on the 17th of March and a lot of things have already changed drastically from that point. Most importantly look after yourselves and take the hint from the title!
p.s I did not edit out swearing in this episode, so not suitable for listening with children around.
