Today's the last day of 2020 and we’ll be taking a look back at the year and picking out some of our favourite stories.  This year, we featured 147 stories on the podcast, plus all of our Real or Rubbishes.  Coronavirus dominated the news this year, but as with our bumper issue of the magazine, we wanted to focus on non-Covid related stories. We’ve picked the stories that made us laugh, made us think, or have stuck with us throughout the year. We’ve also tried to get a real mix of stories: everything from dinosaurs to Mars, cows to cycling. We’d love to hear what everyone listening most enjoyed from 2020’s The Week Junior Show. Send us an email to hello@theweekjunior.co.uk to let us know what stories you loved, and which ones made you think, from the last year. See you in 2021.
