Hi, I just wanted to say that I love your podcast and the way you humorously tell each story while still painting a picture of anything and everything from a tearful goodbye to a tense dinner. I actually sketched up a drawing of Icarus falling based on your description in this podcast because the way that you described that scene was so amazing that I had to draw it. Thanks again and keep it up!
