THIS EPISODE IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF COLTSFOOT
Coltsfoot was one of Twigs' rescue bunnies who thrived in Twigs' care after being rescued by the RSPCA, but remained very very special needs. He's mentioned in the episode, but sadly between recording and releasing the episode he passed away during an operation on an abscess behind his eye.
Our third episode - featuring our first Very Special Guest, Dr Twigs Way. We talk to her about her recent talk on housing at the 2014 RWAF Conference. Twigs very kindly sent us a pdf of her presentation which is viewable below.
(Also we recorded this episode using Google Hangouts instead of Skype, and the sound quality isn't quite as good - so we're very sorry about that.)
NB The above pdf is pretty large - so there's one with lower quality pictures at the bottom of the links in case the large file size of this one causes any problems.
