Minor comment about this episode, no need to publish this comment. It would be have nice to have introduced the Darien Gap for us poor saps who haven’t had the pleasure to visit Central America yet. You’re usually so good about anticipating this and proactively explaining something central to the story, but this time I was left scratching my head wondering what it was. I was under the naive impression that the Pan American Highway was continuous, so I learned something. This was an incredibly interesting episode. Keep up the good work, and good luck in your new venture. Hope you’re able to make a go at it.
