    EXTRA: Simon's musical memory

    Simon is really bad when it comes to matching dates with particular events. Instead, the songs he listens to during certain events remain as time markers in his memory.

    Simon and Martina are passionate about the indie music scene in Korea but generally disappointed at the lack of promotion for these artists. Can the success of K-Pop bring attention to other music genres in Korea?

Love it!!

Always wonderful to listen to balanced opinions

I've been following these two since 2010 and their opinions and stories about people and places they visited and lived are always so enjoyable. They are just two genuinely good people. They are grateful to their fans and when presenting their opinions try to do it in the most respectful way. Even if I disagree with an opinion occasionally, I know they are open to their minds being changed or presenting a logical/good intentioned reason for their opinion. They are smart and have never given in to extremism and I really respect them. Thank you Simon and Martina for just being fun chill people sharing things you've learned and enjoyed about traveling and life. This podcast has really filled the void I felt after your tl;dr videos stopped, I will forever be listening
