Troy Bliss emailed: "Hey Marc,

I loved your show at Gencon this last year. Great music and entertainment! Some of my favorite Celtic bands are The High Kings, Drop Kick Murphys, (Shadows of Esteren, a indie French RPG has four professionally composed albums inspired by their Celtic Gothic Horror Roleplaying game, it's on Bandcamp and is Amazing!), lastly I love a Duo local to RI and MA called Atwater Donnelly. They are traditional folk lore music and are sooo good!

Looking forward to the bumper sticker and supporting you!"

Robert replied on Instagram: “On your second to last podcast you asked everyone what are you doing while listening to the podcast. Well, I don’t have a Facebook so I had to look you up on Instagram. Usually what I do is very very early in the morning when it’s still dark I have my coffee in the garage and I am a tobacco pipe smoker, so I enjoy my cuppa Joe puffing on my pipe listening to some good Irish in Celtic music. Thanks for the podcast you’re doing a great job. Keep it going! Robert”

Alied Pérez Martínez shared a beginner tin whistle YouTube video: "hi Marc, a quick one to show you my skills (for some definitions of skill :D) with the tin whistle, and to thank you for inspiring me to learn it."
