Meet The Hosts
Zoe and Mike have been married for over 10 years. They live in East Anglia in the UK, near where Zoe grew up. They met in Bristol and Mike thinks they got engaged on a whim during an outing to the pub with friends, but Zoe assures him that they’d already decided to get engaged previously. They have a cat and a daughter.
Mike previously co-hosted and produced a Star Wars podcast called The Garbage Will Do, named after a line by Rey in The Force Awakens, and a one-man Dungeons & Dragons podcast called I Cast Pod!
Zoe took over hosting duties on The Garbage Will Do from a leaving member, but shortly after it ceased to be, due to scheduling difficulties. This is her first real foray into podcasting and she’s rather excited.
