This time of year can be a lonely one when you’re a freelancer, with no office parties to attend. Highlighted, of course, by the restriction of movement in a pandemic. But all is not lost. Put on your Christmas jumper, and grab your favourite festive food and drinks, as this week, we invite you (along with 4 Freelance Superheroes) to our first Christmas Podcast Party.

This week, we invite 4 Freelance Superheroes to our first Christmas Podcast Party. As well a Christmas quiz, music from Iona Fyfe, prosecco, and mince pies, we chat about the highs and lows of the last 12 months and look ahead to 2021.

In The Bleak Midwinter (Scots) performed by award-winning, Iona Fyfe. Buy the track at
