  1. Nice story Ron. Always happy to see a new podcast of yours show up.

  2. Thanks, Steven. I appreciate the support of longtime listeners such as yourself.

  3. Hello Ron,

    This was a very special episode and I thank you for sharing it with us.

    While listening to this episode, I was thinking of how caring of you it was to reach out to your father simply by allowing a conversation to happen at his speed and not at the speed dictated by social conventions.

    I am a longtime listener and subscriber of your fantastic podcast. I have been listening to Griddlecakes for years and it is, by far, my number one favorite podcast ever. Even though there are many great productions out there in the podcasting world, nothing has ever come close to the engaging simplicity of your storytelling.

    I started listening to you while I was living in Japan and now I am back in Italy, my homecountry, and your stories are still keeping me company.

    Please, keep it up!


  4. Thank you so much for the kind words, Marianna. They mean a lot to me.
