Les emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, I’ve been a faithful fan of the podcast for many years. I’ve met you at DragonCon several times. I really enjoy the show and share it with friends whenever I can. I was listening and today I decided to share where I was listening.

You see, I moved from Nashville to Prague last September to begin teaching English. I was out in the city listening and decided to share my view on the street as I was listening. Keep up the great work! Thank you for an awesome podcast."

RJ emailed: "Marc Gunn, I am an avid listener to your podcast and play them almost every night to fall asleep to. I was wondering if you had any particular songs that were adventurous or something of the sort. I play dungeons and dragons with a few close friends and some of the music out there is sub-par. I am e-mailing you to see if you know of any lesser-known artists who have something that I could use to set the scene for an adventure or quest."

Scott Selhorst emailed from Dayton, OH: "I loved your Celtic Tunes by Celtic Women for Mother's Day.  I was listening to this podcast at work.  Listening to Irish and Celtic music makes the day go much quicker.  As I listen to your podcasts, some songs and tunes usually make a really good impression on me, and I buy the song.  For this particular podcast, most of the tunes made a really good impression on me.  I bought most of them.  Some I had already owned.  Keep up the great work. I am sorry to hear about Jed Marum.  He is an artist I always enjoyed listening to since I first heard him.  I look forward to listening to your tribute to him."
