All back and refreshed after the festive season break, we resume the usual banter and chat about social media, gadgets and relevant (and sometimes not so relevant) news items. As normal, we have the odd disagreement and a few laughs as we talk through an interesting and varied list of topics and, for the first time, we announce the winner of our fatBuzz Social Media Podcast Green Award!
