    Howard Fisher emailed: "Marc, Greetings!  I first heard the wonders of Irish and Celtic music through my love of the Chieftains and the Pogues; but finding your podcasts was a revelation in more than one way.

    Even though I had love for the music, I had no idea that I would also find a love for the autoharp.  Almost instantly I bought one and began online zoom lessons and although the first month or so has been difficult, my autoharp and I are now in the honeymoon phase and we are both falling in love with each other daily.  Thank you for inspiring me to take this on.  Your tune "Don't Go Drinking with Hobbits" is one of the first real songs that I am working on and I love singing and playing it.  Being a Tolkien fan, I can't wait to hear your new Hobbit songs.  Thanks for all the work that you do.  Take care.  Howard"

    Timothy Thrush emailed: "I just listened to the most recent Pub Songs podcast, and I really enjoyed 'Bright Side Of Everything'. I realize it's a live version & not a final mix so when is Selcouth slated to be released?

    (BTW, the 'Buy CDs' link on that website still goes to the defunct CDBaby store.)"

    I don’t have an official release date for Selcouth yet. I prefer having an album completed before I announce that date. However, I am tentatively aiming to release the album to my Kickstarter supporters by October or November at the latest. The album will be released everywhere else in the spring of next year.

    Ken Katen emailed on Patreon: "Good afternoon, Marc - I”ve just upped my Patreon support of your Irish and Celtic Music podcast to $10/month.  I remember bombing around the back roads of Joshua Tree listening to your paen to Joss Wheedon (it got me to give “Firefly” another chance - thank you).

    Now I’m [belatedly] listening to your Pride Month episode, and am once again impressed by your fearlessness to wade into an area that you feel is important enough to deserve your attention and representation while remaining unafraid to admit your ignorance (which, as Mark Twain observed, “can be fixed, unlike stupidity, which is permanent”) by selecting a great co-host both musically and (sub) culturally.  I wish I could do more, but I’m supporting a raft of podcasts, and some folks in my real life neighborhood businesses who are also struggling right now.

    I can’t fly anymore thanks to radiation treatment a few years back, but your Celtic Invasion Vacations sound wonderful - perhaps one day I can figure out how to travel “across the pond” by boat and join you to enjoy the touring"
