Wow I must say that the latest podcast was/is the best I’ve ever heard on this sight. ( Well next to the Siberian Nightmare episode…or the Year In Europe folks…well they’re all pretty good.) The chemistry, for lack of a better word, between you and your guest was extrordinary! I really, really enjoyed it. I wonder if you can have him back soon?



Glad you liked it. Now you know why I have been trying to have Alex on for a while. ๐Ÿ™‚



Also enjoyed Alex, I am familar with home from another podcast where he occasionally talks about Zimbabwe. “This week in photograhy”. Knowing Alex enthusiaxtic voice probably made it more enjoyable. Great work once again Chris.
