Chris, I just heard the episode; thanks for making me sound a lot more sure of my information than when we recorded and I had tons of Ums and Ahs. 🙂
Enjoy your vacation. I look forward to your shows once you get back.

ENJOYED YOUR INTERVIEW OF DANIEL PEREZ and his trip to Belgium and the Netherlands. We plan on visiting next spring and found it as well as the show notes very helpful



Hello chris,
from Delft, the netherlands. I’m a long time listener and a longer time traveler ( who isn’t?). Just got back from Paris and on my way to Barcelona.
I haven’t got time to listen to the show yet but i’m sure it is great as allways. However there is a small but… my home is in delft and looking through the chapters i saw the word old and new Kirk. That’s allmost correct it should be: Kerk. No big deal but i thought you wanne know. You’ re allways busy with the language, i really like that.
