In today’s episode, the first of 2021 – and part one of two – Joey and David reflect on one of the most disruptive years in recent history form a personal and professional perspective.

From no longer being able to get away and switch off to feel tired, it’s not been easy. But there have been positives, too, such as Viddyoze’s unbelievable success and growth. We certainly won’t be forgetting 2020 for a long time.
