Listening from London

Thank you so much for brightening the dark and rainy early mornings in London as I cycle to work.

Mel and Scotty really bring the parkrun to life from 12,000 miles away. I love listening and reminiscing on the few years that I lived in Australia. Just wish that I could be back in Oz doing the parkrun under a big Australian sky rather than in the drizzle of a Saturday morning in South London!

Keep it up guys - your podcast rocks!!!!!!

Loving the postcast from Blighty

Mel’s theory was definitely true for me. I’m a car podcast listener but today I’m off work but still had half an hour of parkrun adventurers to go, so was able to come give you guys a Five Star review for keeping me entertained and looking forward to parkrun day!

Even a pomm loves it!

The silly thing is, I listened to the first three episodes and then stopped, not at all sure why!
I listened again to the Paul Freyne episode and that was it, I was hooked! I have been back and listened to all the episodes I missed and wait with much anticipation for the new episode each week!
Scott and Mel have such a wonderful dynamic and though I have a very limited knowledge of Australian geography it’s wonderful that these two are filling in the gaps!
Mel’s laugh is like the sun coming out, keep up the excellent work you wonderful people!
