Joël Gustave Nana Ngongang
(Sorry this upload is a bit late!) In this episode, Laura and Will talk about Joël Gustave Nana Ngongang and Laura recommends: https://nuerda.org/. As of this episode, we are going on hiatus! Some of you may have noticed that the past couple of podcast episodes have come with a note saying that there are some issues with the audio quality. This is because our new apartment has a couple of noise sources our old one didn't. We have been trying a couple of things to combat this, but a new family with young children just moved in upstairs, and unfortunately, it seems like it is only likely to get worse. Luckily, I have been doing some research, and there is a free-to-use recording studio at one of our local libraries, and I think recording the podcast there would be a fantastic solution. Unfortunately, because of COVID19, the studio is not open to podcasters right now. So in order to allow for the best possible quality of sound for future episodes, we have decided to go on hiatus! I am very excited for when we can start the podcast up again, but in the meantime, you can always re-listen to old episodes or read the articles on our websites. We also have a very exciting project this month that's all about King Kristina, so see our social media for that! As always, thank you so much for listening, and if you have any questions or comments, you can reach us at email@example.com. [Disclaimer: some of the sources may contain triggering material] (2015).
