Hi Chris – Love the mosttraveledpeople site…It seems I have long way to go. I swear the US should only count once! πŸ˜‰

Chris, great episode, but when listening on my Shuffle to the enhanced version downloaded from iTunes, 3/4 of the way in, it simply died. I tried it on iTunes and it happened as well. Did anyone mention something like this happening?

Looking forward to the next one (downloading now).
