It might be getting cold of late, but here’s Episode 24 of the Custom PC podcast to keep you warm. Well, your ears at least. Clive is joined by Staff Writers Antony Leather and Mark Mackay (whose surname he still can’t pronounce, despite a Derran Brown-like metal memory image) plus CPC Editor Alex Watson.
