  1. This was my first exposure to you podcast and I absolutely loved it! I wasn’t even aware of your podcast until the Hugo nominations were announced-congratulations on your nomination by the way-you get my vote! I enjoyed all parts of the podcast, but especially enjoyed Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains.’ Keep up the great work!
