If you have a visual impairment and you love tech then please do subscribe to their excellent show. I also mention about the Echo Spot that's coming on sale here in the UK tomorrow!

January 21, 2018

For anyone with green fingers, we've a triple dollop of garden goodness today. I'm ashamed to say that the closest I get to green fingers are when Jelly Babies of a certain colour get a bit sticky. Eat them quickly to avoid this eventuality.

What's obvious to me about playing today's skill is that your brain will be extensively addled after endeavouring to ascertain the elusive answer. What's also obvious, though, is that you'll probably want to play it again and again. Answers to my failed 2nd go to #DTDPod please.

January 19, 2018

Come with us to deepest, darkest Africa (well I'm just saying that - the temple, if we finally find it, might end up being on the top of a mountain and basking in the brilliant African sunshine) and together, along with an odd collection of co-explorers, we'll look for that pesky temple until we get bored or bitten by a terantula or something.

Relax. Today's skill is all about becoming less stressed or anxious, and about becoming more confident. So sit back (or lie down - except if you're commuting or operating heavy machinery) and listen to Madeleine's melodic meditations.
