Episode 20: Nichola from the Law Commission talks public service, finding your fit, and working parenthood

I am loathe to say it is a Christmas miracle, but...it's a Christmas miracle!  The podcast returns!  Now with monthly episodes, hopefully increasing to a higher frequency next year.  It feels really good.  Thank you to the many of you who reached out to me during the hiatus - you are wonderful.
