Dan is a very informed Englishman from Grimsby he has a very easy going voice which makes it very easy to learn! I’ve recommended his podcast to everyone and really encourage everyone to get into his Facebook page to support this exciting new podcast.
I’m very quickly getting up to date with the episode but by far my favourite ep would be The Red Baron episode.
Jolly good work Dan
