Episode 14 – Thomas Smith

This is a slightly different episode, done via Skype with Belgium comedian Thomas Smith. Thomas contacted us wanting to visit Estonia and I thought while he was an accomplished comedian, his style didn’t quite fit. Thomas popped up on chat and we started to talk and I thought to make our discussion into a podcast instead. Decide for yourself. Running time 31 mins.
