  • Thanks to Liz Murray for her review on Facebook (32:00):

    “A huge congratulations on the podcast – as a loyal listener, it is right up my street. I’m a middle-aged mum of two with a non-skiing husband having tried my hand at ski racing before children arrived, so hugely appreciate the opportunity to re-live so many of the great things about being up in the mountains that you discuss on the show.”

    We particularly liked her comparison to Alan Partridge (32:30):

    “Thanks again for doing the Podcast – I laugh out loud quite often at how Alan Partridge could learn a thing or two!”
