Virtual Noir at the Bar Episode 22

And just like that, we got to our last weekly show. For some reason the graphics at the beginning read November – it wasn’t! It was the end of August…When we started VNatB back in April we were intending to run for a few weeks. 22 weeks on, we didn’t miss a week, but decided it was time to call time on the weekly shows. Our guest authors for our final regular shows were: CD Major, Kate Medina, Rachel Ward, Stu Turton, Emma Curtis, Kia Abdullah, Lauren North, Chris Lloyd and Karen Hamilton.

The celebrations went on – so due file size, we have had to split the final show into two parts.
