The big Phones Show giveaway

If you're enjoying my podcasts, shows, and general interactions then please consider helping out by joining what I call my monthly 'virtual pint of beer' club - i.e. if you met me in the street, would you at least buy me a beer to say "thank you"? (3 pounds a month was roughly the price of a pint here in the UK when I started all this, a decade ago, now it just buys a 'half'!!).

Updated June 2022. The weekly 'prizes' are now finished, replaced by a one-off 'giveaway' over summer 2022. Listen to Phones Show Chat 700 for details - and I'll keep reminding people on-air after that!
