About us

journohub was set up by Alison and James Palmer.

The couple – both in their forties (let’s not be too specific) – live just outside Cambridge with their two children, Emily, 17 and Max, 16. They have a loopy year-old Labrador called Mr Paul Weller. The whole family enjoy holidays, parties, obscure comedy and are music/gig nuts (their musical taste can be somewhat defined by current and past pets – Floyd the Labrador, Hendrix the cat and Led and Zep the fish). They are planning on a Morrissey and possibly a Bobby Gillespie at some point in the future.
