S2E07 Nissa Ludwig I met Nissa Ludwig on the Joco Cruise in 2018 and recorded a conversation with her then, as well as an extra bit on the 2019 cruise. She is a professional musician who plays a huge range of instruments, but only discovered the ukulele a few years ago. I really enjoyed talking to her and I hope you do too!

S2E05 Molly Lewis This chat with Molly Lewis was recorded on the Joco Cruise in March 2019. Molly has been playing ukulele on that cruise (and in many other places of course!) since its inception nine years ago, and I was so excited to get the opportunity to talk to her for the podcast.

S1E12 Stickie FIngers Stickie Fingers are from Griffith, which is in the Riverina region of New South Wales. I had a chat to them at the Central Coast Ukulele and Folk Festival in August. This is the first time I’ve done an episode with 5 people at once, and it was a little daunting at first! We recorded this in a very small hotel room, and you can imagine how crowded it was with six people and a heap of ukuleles. It was all good fun though, and I enjoyed our chat. I hope you do too!
