Members of The Socially Distant Sports Bar: do not adjust your sets. This is not your regular episode.This is from some friends of ours.We like their podcast and we think you will too.You are about to step out of everyone's favourite imaginary sports bar and into another imaginary pub called The Moon Under Water, where the Landlord John Robins (you know John) and his most dedicated regular Robin Allender invite guests to create their dream pub. You're hearing this because their guest this week is Mike Bubbins (he might be familiar to you). If you like what you hear, search for The Moon Under Water on your podcast provider of choice and head over to their feed to listen to part 2.
