Episode 15: Remember, Remember

Episode 15: Remember, Remember

"Remember, Remember"
Recorded the day after Guy Fawkes day.  It's now 2 years since we first conceptualized the podcast with a pad of paper at Free Times Cafe after the Queen's Park Remembrance Day ceremony in 2008.  So we'll talk about World War One, which some people claim was "great".  Usually we claim nobody was hurt, but in World War One, many people died.
