REVIEW - BUXTON 2020
"It Just So Happened is an entertaining and educational panel show podcast, very much in the same vein as Radio 4's The Unbelievable Truth or Museum of Curiosities... The podcast is online for anyone who didn't experience it live, and remains an entertaining and interesting listen for anyone tuning in."
