Today's show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion of Brittany
Standing stones are pretty awesome and inspiring to see. But imagine 3000 of them, together… and you, able to make a daily sojourn among the stones. This June, you can see the Carnac Stones up close and personal, just a 20 minute walk from where we are staying in the coastal village of Carnac in Northwest France. You have until February 15, 2017 to reserve your spot on the next Celtic Invasion Vacation. Enjoy the culture, history and legends on a timeless adventure with a small group of 6-8 invaders.

I got a text that wrote: “Thanks for your podcast! I love listening to Celtic music and it helps me relax as I work on my grad school presentations”
Kevin Lavery emailed: “I'm a recent college grad from central Pennsylvania and your podcast has kept me company on many solo road trips and whenever my Pandora station just lacks the variety I seek. I know you're often looking for new bands to play, and I wanted to suggest Down by the Glenside. I've seen them perform twice, in Gettysburg and at a Celtic festival in Harrisburg hosted by the Kilmaine Saints. Both bands put on a great show at the festival, but DbtG was closer to my own tastes in music. I'd love to see their work get some love with a wider audience. Thanks for doing what you do.”
