  1. David,
    THANKS MUCH for using my music in your podcast.
    I really appreciate the support!
    I loved your podcast…I especially liked the talk you gave this time about voter apathy.
    I couldn’t agree more.
    I live here in “the States” where a lot of good, well intentioned, folks I know care deeply about issues that are important to them, but yet when it comes time to vote, they sit it out.
    Shameful, in my opinion.
    How many lives have been lost fighting for the right to vote, yet when it comes time to cast that vote, we find our freedoms in competition with what’s on television that night?
    It’s amazing how trivialized the most fundamental of human needs can become in the hands of the public.
    Anyways…..THANKS for the use of my music, sir.
    I really appreciate it.
    I’ve placed a link back to your podcast on my website on my podcast “sightings” page at

    I couldn’t find a logo or indentifying image on the site so I just snagged a capture from the text.
    If you’d like something different as far as an image on, just let me know.

    Feel free to use more of my music on your podcasts.
    Take care,

  3. Just wanted to write about how much I enjoy your podcast. I’m a knitter and spinner who lives in the Pacific NW of the United States, and I always find your shows interesting and entertaining. Look forward to the new series starting up next month. Thanks very much for all the work on the podcast and sharing it with us. 🙂
