    Hi Jack,

    I love the podcast – (Listening in from Vancouver, Canada). Can you tell me the name of the show’s theme tune / intro music – I love it!

    Cheers.

    Hi Swampo
    Glad you like the show and it’s great to know it’s making its way all the way to Vancouver!!
    The theme music I’ve been using in this season is ‘Broadway Jungle’ by Toots and the Maytals, recorded under the name ‘The Flames’.

    Hello from New Jersey USA. Your show is the best! I Listen to many episodes more than once. You’re very good about mentioning the artists when you feature songs. I was wondering who the artist is that you feature when you asked for donation in Green London? Money (Thats what I want) by:

    Hi Sam,
    That was ‘Money’ by The Flying Lizards. Glad you’re enjoying the show. How’s bicycle culture in New Jersey?

    Decidedly unfantastic. We are enough people to galvanize into something, but we’re spread a bit thin to connect easily. It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. For cyclists in this area to have an identity, in some capacity, would be a boon to our collective spirits.

    Dear Sam,
    Do take a listen to this week’s show. It contains a long chat with Jon Winston from San Francisco. Maybe there are some lessons from there…
