Troy Rodgers emailed: "Hey Marc, Just wanted to let you know, I got my Bards CD and shirt this morning.  Thanks! The album has, of course, been getting play already thanks to the digital version. In traditional Bards style, it's such a fun album.  So good to have you and Andrew working together again.

While I'm here, I wanted to express how much I appreciate your support of women in Celtic music.  I'd meant to chime in earlier. Better late than never. In any case, I heard some feedback from one listener saying they were buying albums from everyone on the podcast to do their part.  I've been doing the same, and I'm sure others have been as well. I admire your willingness to double down on this across all of your platforms. There's more than enough room for any Celtic musician on the stage without unnecessary divisions.  It's the sort of thing that makes me proud to back your efforts, musical and otherwise."

Jamie Annear-Feyrer emailed a photo: "Listened to episodes 422 and 421 on the way to Irish Fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It definitely got me in the spirit! Thanks for all the work you do- I’ve been listening for many years and love the diversity of all the great Celtic music the show has exposed me to. Slainte"
