Whispers in Museum London

25 Feb

Happy Thursday, all!

Lola and I met up today for the first time in a bit – what a crazy month February is! Between Research Week and heading to the OLA Superconference tomorrow… gosh.

Today we spent an hour in the top level of Museum London, overlooking the “ice fountain” and the Thames, recording what will be our main introductions and signoffs for the podcast, as well as a few of our “bumpers”… trying to add some local flavour to our audio, as always!

We are expecting to release our first episode within the next few weeks – so get excited, folks! Until the next update (for me, post-OLA),
