They also host their podcast, Q&Abe, which covers questions that visitors to the cottage often ask them, including whether he was gay or not. This podcast was edited and produced by Stuart Beckwith. The senior producer was Charlotte Long. Enjoy unlimited access to award-winning original documentaries that are released weekly and AD-FREE podcasts.
