I had no problems at all. There is a slight touch of Norwegian in Scottish and perhaps Irish too, so perhaps that'sthe resaon.

Oh, well, I'm very glad to hear it. I always worry about how regional accents convey themselves in other countries. I'm never very keen on hearing my own voice played back on a recording either although I did listen to it all the way through to hear how it sounded!

We all feel we sound different in recordings. Don't worry about it.

I probably worry too much about things like that. That's just me. I'm glad my accent wasn't an issue for you and I must say I never knew that about Scottish/Irish accents! Anyway, I'm glad you found the Spybrary podcast of interest and there are thankfully many more there to listen to and enjoy. ajb007/smile

How To F#€k Up An Airport

The new Berlin airport costs five times the original estimate, is eleven years late and it still hasn't opened. It's really uplifitng (if you're not Higgins, of course) to learn that your government isn't the only one that can be incompetent and waste taxpayer money. Even the German government can do it!  ajb007/lol

We know Tom Hanks is a huge moviestar, but he really loves history too. Dan Carlin and his Hardcore History is one of the superstars in the history podcast community. Tom Hanks has now written and starred in the movie "Greyhound" that's about a destroyer protecting a convoy in the Atlantic in WWII. Here is an episode of Hardcore History where Tom Hanks is interviewed and talks with great enthusiasm and quite a lot of knowledge about history and the movie. Great stuff!

It will be back. They're just finishing their Moonraker Christopher Wood noveilisation audiobook. And then I'm guessing they'll be doing stuff to lead up to NTTD
