We’ll be the first to admit we’re a bit rubbish at getting podcasts out in a timely fashion. It takes time my dear!

But amazingly we have the first for 2014 one out in January and we think it’s a goodun.

In this one, Elliott speaks to new PPL and TV smarty-pants Carol Vorderman, and hears about her plans for world domination.

We also have a second Celebrity Pilot and friend of the podcast – but you’ll need to listen, no spoilers here!

We hear from Pablo Mason on military discipline, and speak to Mark Barnard of the CAA about their plans for GA.

Also we’ve got a (belated) series of interviews from The Flying Show which took place towards the end of last year at the NEC.

Here’s the running order:

0.00 Introduction
2.30 A guest on aviation, motorbikes and managing bands
