#21 – Lessons from the Kitchen in 2021

 “The figures fill me with hope. Because this journey we’re taking is so important for health, for our children and for the planet. People are interested, they want to learn, they want to move…” Alison

The podcast made it from a twinkle in our eyes to 14,000+ downloads this year! And it’s taught us both so much. Listen in to hear us talk about what worked, what we’ve both been up to and what we hope to bring to life in 2022.
