Thanks to episode sponsors http://signalsounds.com for your modular/synth purchasing needs and thonk.co.uk for your DIY needs!

On the one year anniversary of Why We Bleep, we decided to return to revisit our very first guest, the immense and fascinating Music Thing Modular-making journalist, consultant and all round thought-provoking person that is Tom Whitwell. In it we generally hang out and chat discuss all manner of music technology, gear, people, things and ideas. 

Shoutout to the work of the Yorkshire Sound Women's Network at the end of the podcast and the #audioequitypledge - Read about the Audio Equity Pledge and perhaps you might like to take it in 2019: https://drlizdobson.com/2018/08/28/audioequitypledge/
