X-Band: Phantom Podcast #208 - New Years Resolution - Read Some Back Issues


To wrap up our festive season we have created a New Years Resolution that we all can get around and ensure we follow through. Forget eating healthy, saving your money or doing more exercise - let us all take some time out and read a Phantom back issue.


Mikael Lyck, Duncan Munro and Ankit Mitra join regulars Jermayn Parker, Dan Fraser and Stephen East in reviewing (one or two) stories that are worth digging out and having a re read. Some of the stories have been reprinted regularly and within the last 5 years but many have been out of print for 10 or 20 years.
