We're going to London in June for the New Media Podcast Awards. Reza was 'gutted' (very disappointed) last year because he couldn't go. This year he's going and we really want to wind an award for Audience Appreciation.

Please nominate us for the award on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mansioningles/
