#CU on the air - episode 18
CU20 was the Comms Unplugged that wasn't when coronavirus forced us to cancel. Not to be deterred though, some of our unpluggers still gave themselves the time and space to unplug. Teamunplugged's Sally and Georgia led the way with their annual pilgrimage to Burnbake in Dorset (home of Comms Unplugged) for a #CUfor2. This episode you can hear what they got up to and also enjoy tales of unplugged adventures from around the country.
