    Thanks, Jack, for another excellent podcast. Martin Newell’s poem about Essex provides one of my new all-time favorite lines: “Pubs to punctuate the pedaling.”

    Great show. Newell seems the perfect spokesman (sic). It would be great to have a transcript. There’s a beach boys sounding song that I’d like to ID.

    Thank you for the pleasant podcast.

    He sounds like a real character, good to hear a real Essex accent, rather than the typical Estuary English.
