Thank you for listening to last weeks episode, and if you've made it this far I'm going to assume you enjoyed it - hooray!
As your reward here is a picture of us recording the episode and playing with Goofy, in Constanza's beautifully decorated studio.
I've received some feedback that people want to hear a little more about Constanza's life, and how I know her. I first heard about Constanza through my mum, who by chance ended up in a vocal workshop that Constanza was running, and very quickly became her #1 fan. My mum is a pretty cool lady, and she runs a gospel choir in her spare time, when she's not being a doctor. So she asked Constanza to sing a solo for her choir's Fringe Festival performance, which is how I met her.
If you'd like to read more about Constanza's incredible life I've included her bio below, or you can visit her website www.constanzaherrero.com.
