Hi Guys, I love your youe and have listen to certain episodes more tahn once.
the Anne Franks and Audrey Hepburn episodes are by far my favorites. I do wish you could redo the Titanic episode as all your others and nto on lacation, somethinga bout it being done on location makes it fell less intamate, not to mention how distarcting the background noises are. that said I cant really complain, love you guys stacks, your biggest fan in sunny South Africa.
