Summer Cruiser posted on iTunes: “Upbeat and happy music! Great podcast, well-spoken host, fun/good music. All around excellent podcast”

Mark Hughes wrote on iTunes: “Fantastic resource for Celtic music. I am a long-time subscriber and supporter on Patreon. Please give this podcast a listen. You will not be disappointed.”

Anthony Becker posted on Facebook: “Listening to The Irish and Celtic Music Podcast on the way from my hotel to the Broadcast Center in Rio De Janiero, Brazil for the Olympics. Here I am passing the Velodrome where the indoor cycle events went on. Nothing better than a bit of great Celtic music to make the walk, and day go faster — thinking about going home at Rio 2016 Olympic Park.

Katherine Thompson emailed a photo and wrote: “I've been listening to your show since its second year running, back when I was in high school, and I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to have a running constant in my life from high school to college to serving in the Peace Corps in Zambia. When I'm not teaching 8th grade English at a rural school or writing my own music, I'm often in my mud hut listening to the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast, cheerfully blaring it for my entire village to hear! It's helped me combat homesickness over the past two years, but I only have two weeks left before I finish this life-changing assignment and I wanted to let you know that you played a huge part in it.”

Today's show is brought to you by Pirates vs Dragons

You'll hear sea shanties interwoven with a Celtic Steampunk musical story about an air pirate that kidnaps a bard to immortalize his dragon treasure hunting in song. What he doesn't realize is that the musician will do anything to protect the dragons. Subscribe to my mailing list to notified when it is released, or go to celticmusic.org/savethedragons
