As if to remind Susie & Esther why they called the podcast Limited Time Only, the final episode of the season has come around already. And to reinforce the point, the episode is all about the 1990s - a marvellous decade which began just a few years ago, right?! 32 years ago to be precise. Excuse us while we cry into our Hooch.

All is not lost, however, as Susie & Esther discover solace as well as bittersweetness in remembering their youth. And are they actually still 16 in a parallel universe? Probably not. But who wants to do their GCSEs again anyway?!

The final guest of Season 2 is pop royalty - H from the band, Steps! (Esther & Susie are still pinching themselves). Celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year, Steps are in the midst of a national tour; have just released another brand new single, Hard2Forget; and next month release their Platinum Collection album packed with their greatest hits from 1997 to 2022. It's still all go for the band whose music is the soundtrack to our 90s youth. As well as all this, H also presents his own weekly radio show on BBC Wales and is the father to 6 year old twins - the hardest job of all! H is an absolute delight - funny, generous and insightful. He speaks candidly about his experiences of growing up as a young gay man and how his same-sex pairing with Matt Evers in Dancing on Ice in 2020 was ground (and barrier) breaking. He tells us about the joy of being in Steps and how the band has always provided an inclusive, safe space for everyone. We hear about his hidden talents; his parenting tips; and who he thinks would win in a fight - S Club 7 or Steps?! H is everything you'd hope and more. A most wonderful guest. Enjoy!

There's a return visit to the Sparks Joy gals, Barbara & Pamela as they take a flutter on some 90s clutter; a YouBash; gorgeous audience responses to the question, 'What are your happiest memories from the 90s?'; and...drum roll please...the winner of the inaugural LTO Audience Award is announced!

Susie & Esther have had a blast producing LTO Season 2. Thank you so much for listening.
