T.I.T. Podcast Episode 49: A Christmas Vidcast

Ho, Ho, Ho!  I thought I’d record a special vidcast for Christmas this year, instead of a podcast episode.  My partner agreed to sit down with me for a quick Merry Christmas to everyone out there, so please sit down and have a look and meet my partner for Christmas this year.  Lots of love and a very, very Merry Christmas to all of you out there!  (WARNING:  for some reason it seems to have been recorded quite loud!)
