Wow, enjoying this episode!

Dude, you take us to some interesting places if we can get past the self analysis ...

I have listened to all of your episodes. your way of capturing in the moment audio and reactions is just great. I especially enjoy your way of giving your prospective of in the moment: nothing is seemingly held back, we can actually hear the joy and amazement in your discovery.

"After The Fall" blew me away!

Is that Winnipeg Glen? Thank you! I think if I'm done with the self-analysis, I'll be done with the podcast - they seem to be tied together.

- Glen - said...

Yes, this is Winnipeg Glen... still here, still listening.

Well, all this has prompted me to look for an audio book of "On The Road'. I found one.
Who knows I may even read it over the next while.

Keep the episodes coming.

On The Road seems to be a good read when one is young and has the world ahead to take on. I think it's a harder book to relate to once established in life. My personal favourites are Big Sur and Dharma Bums. But as an audio book, that's probably the best way to go, as it's Kerouca's flow of words that made it so famous. Enjoy listening!
