Bite Me

Presented by Joanne McNally

One day, over her morning carrot, Joanne realised she’d lost her mind. Turns out it was pinned to a lost property board up in space, enjoying the view. Trying to entice it back to earth became the toughest, funniest and weirdest time of her life.

This is the story of Joanne’s amaaaaaaazing diet!
