Wunderbar!

Philip Adams' podcast keeps me sane in an increasingly fractured world his calm intelligence never ceases to soothe. I have had the joy of listening to this show regularly since back in the old radio days some 19 years ago. Thank you Philip, from the bottom of my heart. Long may you and LNL thrive!
