In this episode we’re going to help you get undressed (and dressed)! They’ll be a live unzipping by Reza and a live unbuttoning by Craig. If you don’t know what that means, you need to listen to this podcast!
Feedback: Elisa from Finland
After the last episode I had my palm read 😉 And guess what, my future seems to be brilliant. The lady told me that she can see two men and probably one dog …
Both men were bald but the dog was hairy… One of the men had a tattoo on the top of his head… something like Mickey Mouse..
But the main thing was that they had a big announcement in their hands: We are podcasting forever!
We spoke about clothes on Episode 7
