47 Ranch: Happy New Year! It's been a minute. Thanks for listening; any thoughts, comments, suggestions?

May I say it was perfect? Thoughtful, from a place of experience, and from the heart? I especially loved the commentary on Brooks' op-ed and your "Why Be Fly" essay. It reminds me of staying up all night with the sun at a sidewalk cafe at High Summer (June 21) in Oslo, or shopping for rare, pristine, (the thick stuff, not the flimsy stuff) 33 rpm jazz albums at The Wave in Tokyo.

Don't get me wrong - I love Rick Steves too, but your show - and your writing - just *sends* me.

All the best of luck in your new venture.

Wow, Ranch...I don't even know what to say other than many, many thanks! The bar has been set, I guess, LOL.

Really enjoyed the podcast and the music blended well with all the segments. It had some good commentary and info.
I used to do the same thing with travel centers when I was younger. lol
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next one.

Phenomenal podcast! Your commentary on on the NYT artice and Haitian history are on point.

I loved your music selections; the way they're weaved in reminds of a public radio talk show only hipper.

Looking forward to future episode.
