Welcome to a special edition of Only Connect! You know what? Each week I look at the teams and, let’s be honest, they do tend to be nerdy people of a certain age who have really have nothing better to do! They usually have unhealthy and very uninteresting obsessions. Things like “style” and, dare-I-say it, personal hygiene are not priorities.
How refreshing then, to meet the Afterword Massive. (Long pause)
