Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are Emmy-winning writer DAVID QUANTICK (Go West, The Mule, The Thick Of It, Veep, The Blagger's Guide) and blogger and author JO MIDDLETON (Slummy Single Mummy, Playgroups and Prosecco). In this episode we encounter a vicar inappropriately sponging his aspidistra, recall the postage stamps that only existed in sweetshop packets, and relive the horrors and indignities of school foreign exchanges. Along the way we discuss the Soviet space programme, the days when radio requests were sent by postcard and John Peel's missing Festive Fifty. Hide the rabbit's head behind the cruet, for the Cosmos belongs to us all. Wish you were here?
