#E03 Rumpus Room

This podcast was recorded in November 2018 after the Melburners Decompression with Phil, Ritchie, and Lana. In this episode we discover what it is like as a first-year theme camp at 2018 burning seed; being a parent and bringing infants to a burn; and what is a silent disco. An exclusive Rumpus Room DJ mix is also attached to this episode.
