    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.

My favourite podcast 🎉

I love Simon and Martina so much on YouTube, and the EYK podcast is just as amazing. It’s such a positive, happy thing, it’s my go to when I’m feeling a bit low and need a pick me up.

Even when the topic is sensitive (like the most recent episode about Anthony Bourdain), it’s handled so well and with such love.

I’ve told so many people to listen to the EYK Podcast, it’s one of the best podcasts out there, and it needs to be heard by everyone!

Obsessed

I love Simon and Martina’s podcast so much! The thing I love about them is that no matter what they are talking about, even if I don’t have too much interest in the topic or have a different opinion, they’re just so charismatic and so good at putting their point across in an entertaining and really engaging way. They could be talking about thrift stores (I’ve never been to a thrift store in my life) or discussing instead of being obsessed with sights when people travel, how about we focus on talking to people and experiencing the people (I hate talking to strangers unless necessary), but whatever they talk about I always think, oh hey that’s interesting actually and I really enjoy listening to their views on stuff cos they are cool people.
So I could listen to anything they talk about and just smile along. My morning walk to work has become a lot more enjoyable since finding these!

Give it a go

Might not be the most mainstream kind of thing but definitely worth giving it a go. Funny and entertaining. Give you a smile on the more difficult days and sometimes a loud snort.

Absolutely love the two of you. Thanks for bringing so much joy to me through the videos and now the awesome podcast. I love the exciting food and adventures but it’s also something really wonderful to see you guys’ views on cultural issues and views on life in general. To experience these through your eyes is magical. Such positive and nice people.
