Our guest for this episode is the brilliant Tommy Barnes, author of the hilarious new book A Beer in the Loire! He tells us all about how he and his wife decided to pack in the rat race, move to France, have a baby, and set up a brewery, all within a ludicrously short space of time. We find out what it's like living with a dog who wants to murder you, and Tommy recalls the time Derek Acorah tried to communicate with his dead pet frog, Burt Reynolds. There's also a live beer tasting and a stupid game. A Beer in the Loire is out now, and it's one of the funniest books we've ever read. You can follow Barnes on Instagram @brasloubiere and Twitter @tommybarnes1977. Thank you to iheartwines.co.uk for supplying the wine we guzzled our way through in this episode. The Scummy Mummies book is OUT NOW!
