THAT COMIC SMELL 20: Christmas Swag (Best of 2017)

The new episode of That Comic Smell is now online.
Have a listen at iTunes, Soundcloud and YouTube.
From the website:
"After some technical issues we are back online for 2018!
Hello folks and welcome to That Comic Smell Podcast Episode 20!! Can you believe that we have 20 in the bag so far?
In this episode the folks here discuss what they got for crimbo, making our way around the table and unveiling what was hiding in Santa's sack for us all.
In doing so however, we also discover what our best picks were for 2017, what we managed to get a hold of and what we thought ticked off that top spot for 2017.
So sit back, relax and pull up a chair.
Listen to the only podcast that ages like a fine wine... or a Tesco £3.99 deal, whatever you fancy.
