  2. Sigh….. I have to say that I am missing your podcasts since my iPhone fell down the toilet. Can’t wait to get a replacement so I can catch up on your shows. Thanks for the updates on Cornbury – very useful, especially as I am off there myself this weekend! Are you guys going?

    Annie: Yes, we shall both be at the Cornbury music festival all weekend, we have press accreditation and back-stage passes! Whoopee!!

    We should arrange to meet up. I’ll be wearing one of our ‘This Reality Podcast’ T-Shirts, so I’ll be fairly easy to identify. Soph will be with me most of the time. We’ll be struggling under the weight of the video camera, digital stills camera and an mp3 recorder and microphone.
