Myself and Emma Timmis headed off to run Hadrian’s Wall at the end of August and I wanted to share more of the story with you. So whilst I was away I thought about what the best way to do this was.
Although my interviews are very informal and relaxed they do take me a long time to edit. At the moment I don’t have the capacity to edit two full podcast episodes a week. So instead, as a compromise I thought I’d upload a raw, unedited conversation of what my previous guests have been up to since we last spoke.
So in essence…..Tough Girl Extra is an extra podcast episode that will be happening on an adhoc basic, it’s going to be released on a Thursday #ToughGirlThursday at 7am UK time.
This is a new style for me and I would love to get your feedback. Please do let me know what you think. You can either comment below, send me an e-mail (email@example.com) or send me a DM on twitter @_TOUGH_GIRL.
I hope you enjoy! You can listen now by clicking the play button below!
