Microphone Appeal: This is an appeal on behalf of LA Podcast (a serious one)

We've been gearing up to record LA 231, which would have been our 6 year anniversary special and to help us celebrate this momentous achievement, our microphone has died (which could be an omen, but we've chosen to ignore it). Despite various attempts to rectify the problem, everything has failed and the damn thing is kaput. We have no back-up and so will need to fork out £109.99. So, in light of this, we've resorted to begging. We have one more episode to release before the big birthday episode is due to be recorded on 19th February 2018 *cough, meaning 230 episodes of completely free content, cough*, so if you can spare anything at all, it would be hugely appreciated.

Many thanks,

Alex and Rob #KeepItLocal
