Hi Luise, The authors mentioned were Patrick (Paddy) Leigh Fermor, Colin Thubron, Paul Theroux , and Jan Morris.
Dear Adam, thanks for your wonderful podcasts. I enjoy them very much. I would like to ask you (or any other native speaker and listener for that matter): would it be possible to write down the names of the travel authors mentioned in your chat with Michael Palin? Although my English is quite okay, I am having trouble understanding all the names and would really love to read some of the works mentioned.
I'd be eternally grateful! Best from Berlin,
Excellent episode of your fab, funny podcast. Thank you.
Dr Buckles, what can I say but thank you for coming back into my life in such a glorious way. I'm so happy that I have stumbled across your podcasts. I have listened to so many of them in quick succession because they are like a breath of fresh air. Honest, interesting, funny, musical, and relaxing! As for this podcast well, Michael Palin a longtime hero of mine for many reasons but mainly because watching him, listening to him or reading his words just warms my cockles.
They say never meet your heroes... but Michael sounded like a genuuinely lovely chap, which is heartening.
Loving the podcast, it makes me smile while I work.
A note about Comments
Hello Podcats and Blog friends,
I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.
