I do though just want to say thank you to The Guardian and hello and welcome to any new folks who’ve found the website because of this – we hope you’ll come along for the ride for the next 18 months (or however long it takes…). You can catch up on the journey so far or read about the expedition if you’d like to get up to speed, sign up to our podcast or newsletter and, obviously, feel free to say hello in the comments.
