Christmas

Love your work Steve but please don’t listen to the people you had talking about an English Christmas. Most British people are against fox hunting in any form. This is an outdated pastime for the ‘upper classes’ and abhorred by us common folk. I had to comment as they made it sound as though it’s common practice. I assure you it’s not.

Good podcast

An interesting podcast, always listen to it while I'm travelling.

Rick really knows his stuff!

Would like to hear a little more from & for those based outside USA, and also for travellers with disabilities and / or mobility impairments - resources etc.
