Podcast #5: Summer girls

I can't stand the heat (another allergic reaction I get to anything remotely related to Greece!) but I love the sunshine and its lazy ways and how it makes you a bit cheeky and silly. I love its hopefulness and the ice cream. I love how it makes water taste like nectar and how it won't let me go to sleep. I love seeing things in it, things that look unimportant under any other light. I love how it means summer, how it makes me crave the seaside, how it makes me happy to be a girl.

I've been waiting to do an all-girl podcast for ages and today seemed like a good time to hear these voices blending like one big sunbeam.
