Lots of helpful advice and interesting guests but wish John and presenter weren’t so resistant to saying “well thanks” to callers polite enquires. What’s the harm even though you might have to say it a dozen times.

I live in NSW but listen religiously to this podcast. Generally, I can adapt most advice to where I live which has a similar climate to the Adelaide hills. I absolutely love it!
