Like the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle before it, or the Dead Sea Scrolls before that, Wavelength’s It’s Not The Length podcast serves as an important historical and cultural record of our times.
With a collective sigh as we leave 2020 astern, like the welcome relief felt when that obnoxious drunk of a mate has finally passed/been punched out (or roofied, if that’s what it takes). 2020 ‘s fun n’ games are now, finally all but over.
We offer a variety of ways of looking back.
There’s our written review of the year in surfing: 2020 Revision, there’s 2020 Through the Lens of Luke Gartside for a pictorial study.
And then there’s our podcast best bits.
We’ve put together some highlights from a year of pods that include an assortment of voices, from Evans and Mondy’s regular rip snorting contributions to colourful insights from the likes of G-Mac, Sean Pertwee, Chas Smith, Andy Martin and Nick Hayes.
Big thanks for tuning in and continuing to support the pod, wishing you the very best of health and happiness for the new year and beyond.
