  1. Is it just me, or does everyone get super-excited and filled with anticipation when Corey announces that another podcast is on the way?
    These really make my day. =)

    • Aw shucks… you’re making me blush.

      Wish I had the time to post more often… and trigger more super-excitement around the internet ;)

  2. Thank you so much, Corey, for including my Celtic harp versions of “Fields of Gold” and “Blackbird” in your posdcast. I always feel so honored when you include my music in your wonderful show.
