Annelise emailed: "Hi Marc, I'm writing to thank you for the bonus episode, "Pandemic Patience." I'm a university student and was sent home from school last month because of the pandemic. I've been listening to your podcast for two years, and your extra episodes have helped soften the blow of school closing. I love listening to the podcast while I study for my online classes. (Which I'm doing right now!). Thank you again for your podcast and all you do! Slainte"

Jacob emailed on Patreon: "I had to change my support level due to my job loss. Apologies. Hopefully I will find something that lets me move the amount back up again. Please keep sharing the great Celtic music!"

Scott Benson emailed: "Hi Marc,  I am sorry to give you bad news but I had to drop my patron status with the celtic music podcast.  I have been slowly tightening my belt with everything going on and I held off as long as I could with the podcast.  As a fellow Celtic musician I appreciate all that goes into the work and I was happy to support.  I cancelled my Amazon prime membership, hulu, and my audible membership before I the podcast...I was really trying to hold on as long as I could.  I hope to be able to join back as a patron in the future but for the moment it is just a little too tight for me.  Keep up the good work!  Slainte."
