Mr

John's Far East Adventure podcasts are an exhilarating experience to listen to - you feel transported back to that amazing experience you had in Asia or to the place you now yearn to visit. I first got into these podcasts prior to a visit to Ranthambore national park in Rajasthan - my fellow travel companions and I listened to the podcast on the drive from Jaipur to the tiger park. By the time we had reached there we were all well clued up on what to expect and this really helped us. I am fairly convinced this also helped us see the largest male tiger in Ranthambore so we have John to thank for this. We also saw a large python. With regards to Lynn's review I don't think that an advert now and again is a big deal. Interestingly enough I only get these adverts when I stream on 4G - if I download and listen via my sonos system whilst I cook dinner for the family it doesn't seem to play them. Not that this was any concern for me at all. Thanks John - keep them coming. Namaste

Travel Asia with John!

(This is a revised review)
I work as a commercial archaeologist and often spend hours watching a machine removing topsoil without finding anything to interest me. I discovered John's podcasts a wee while ago and they are now a permanent feature on my playlist. Travelling around Asia with John not only provides me with interesting and informative entertainment, but helps me remain engaged with the job in hand. There are now many more places on my to visit list! I have an issue occasionally with adverts, but as another reviewer has pointed out it is only when using 4G to listen....I now download them all. Also, occasionally interviewees aren't as audible as they could be and I lose the sense of the interview, but listening to the podcast in close proximity to a noisy machine probably doesn't help! Keep them coming, John 😃
