We're Back!

It's been a crazy busy 8 months since our last Podcast. A lot has happened and we can't quite comprehend that we are now classed as a 'Unicorn Brand' 🦄

Noel and I wanted to talk over all of the details of signing the billion-dollar deal and what it means for us as a company. I've had a lot of questions and assumptions regarding the deal which I hope I have cleared up here.

As always thank you for all of your support. Let us know of any topics you might want us to talk about in another podcast.
