Episode 080: The Tudor Bake Along – Tudor Jumbles

Episode 080 is the Great Tudor Bake Along Episode in which we make Tudor Jumbles together. It was a pretty non traditional episode. To start with, we were recording in the kitchen. Normally I record from a script, at my desk, with a decent sound setup, using a pop filter. Instead, we were mixing ingredients, opening bags of flour, running water – so the sound quality isn’t the greatest. But I think it’s made up for by Hannah’s cuteness. Or maybe I’m just biased.

If you want to bake with me, you can follow along in the podcast, and get all the information below. Plus, the history of all the ingredients used.

But first, the Agora Podcast Network Survey I mention which will take 2 minutes of your time, and we would really appreciate your feedback: https://podcastsurvey.typeform.com/to/OX7nLd
