    I enjoy all feedback about the show, so please do get in contact. Reviews and comments wherever you leave them are always welcome, whether on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, social media or via email.

    Old Fartbag: “I listened to what Al said with interest. I’m not sure I have ever heard him be so enthusiastic over a ski”

    Andrea Dalton: “Loved listening to Diane, another fab episode! Found it interesting but also a shame for our English young people that want to do a season.”

    BobinCH: “Enjoyed that! The Diane from Skiworld lady was funny. Great work!”

    Anon: “Thank you so much Iain for keeping going during the last two years, your podcasts helped more than you probably know (for me at least) during challenging times. I love hearing about everything related to the mountains, long may it continue.”

    Ryunis: “Great to put a voice to LaTania.co.uk It’s a fantastic website and a really great source of info. Keep up the great pods. They help me still feel tuned in to the mountain community.”
