  1. Ever since finding the podcast I look forward to listening everyday, going to relisten to old episodes. Very well done, very well put together and presented. Please continue the outstanding work.

  2. I am a little behind on the podcast, but I just listened to this episode. I just wanted to comment on when at one point in the story you said “it was quiet… a little too quite”. And, whenever I hear a phrase like that it immediately reminds me of that scene in the Ninja Turtles movie: “hey look it’s Raph… yeah, a little too Raph”. I was surprised, and had a good laugh, that after the ending theme song of your show, you played that movie quote. Your subtle jokes are so good; like referring to Jack Sparrow and Legolas. Anyway, great podcast!

    1. Thank you so much! I always try to keep them subtle, mostly because we might be about to talk about something serious, but I love it when someone catches them. And you’re the first to mention the ‘a little too Raph’ line. To me at least. Cheers!
