Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area.

Chris Dial emailed on Facebook: "Hey Marc! I really love the podcast! I’m actually here in Ireland doing an internship on an archaeological site, Blackfriary Dominican Friary, here in Trim, County Meath, and listening to episode 412, Galway Shawl, while working today! Anyway, just wanted to say I really enjoy the podcast and hope your travels in Star Wars are out of this world! Sláinte!"

Sean Lightholder emailed on Facebook: "What's up Marc. I heard you call out for female pipers back on your Fight Like a Celtic Woman episode. My good friend and fellow Irish musician Autumn Rhodes was posting a new female Uilleann piper every week there for a while in an effort to raise awareness of how many talented female pipers are out doing their thing. I'd reach out and say you were referred by me to see if she could point you in the right direction ??"

Elle Clark emailed: "Hi Marc, I really appreciated your statement on diversity! I don’t know if you’ve already done this in the past but I’ve been thinking for a while to suggest a queer-themed episode. I thought maybe it would be “too political” or something... guess not! I’d really love to hear an episode featuring queer songs and/or queer artists. If you can’t gather enough there’s always the old standby of love songs originally sung by one gender being covered by the other without changing the pronouns. This could be a good episode for June which is pride month in the US, or maybe there is an important date in Ireland that would suit."
