In episode 15, Rosie manages to stretch her birthday celebrations out for an absurdly long time, Jessica reports on an exhibition she went to ages ago and Rosie reports on some excellent food she’s had out and about, plus a Cholera Outbreak. There’s a Strictly Update, Top 5s, a Snack of the Week and some disappointed animals.
You can listen to it on iTunes or online here:
This week’s songs:
Jessica picked ‘Stacey’s Mom‘ by Fountains of Wayne, because it is apparently it is 2003.
Rosie chose ‘Another Sunny Day‘ by Belle and Sebastian. That’s quite a lovely animation set to it as well.
Rosie recommends the Red Velvet Whoopie Pies at the Hummingbird Bakery. Yum yum.
For more information on the 1854 Cholera Epidemic in Soho, there’s a whole Wikipedia article and a photo so you can really picture where we were.
The Day of Fun Comic Book Retailer of Choice is Gosh!.
Twelfth Night has now closed, but do go to the Globe Theatre if you get the chance.
Delicious, delicious breakfast-y and non-breakfast-y food (especially the When Halloumi Met Salad wrap) at The Breakfast Club.
You can see clips of all the dances from Strictly at the BBC website.

Jessica’s Top 5s run ‘in no particular order’: Truckers, Diggers and Wings by Terry Pratchett, Brambly Hedge by Jill Barklem, Ivy Cottage by E.J. Taylor, The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg and Jessica by Kevin Henkes.
Rosie and Jessica remind you to support your local library and bookshops!

Rosie’s birthday cake was an ombre and actually worked:
Starbucks might want to rethink their van designs.
This children’s librarian has excellent tattoos.
