  1. Good episode. Have a friend who vacations often in Slovenia and loves it. Been wanting to visit Croatia for a couple of years now. Have heard great things about it. Maybe this summer — tack it on to a trip to Hungary to visit my wife’s family.

    Two suggestions on comments in this episode –

    1. Check out this episode (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0151q7j) of the BBC’s In Our Time podcast for a discussion of Etruscan civilization. I think you’re not finding much information about them because they didn’t leave too much behind

    2. I suggest using a bit of music to denote the beginning and end of each episode. I do it on my podcast and find it successful. Indeed, I use music to denote new topics/segments in my podcast. It’s an old radio trick. I wouldn’t like to see several seconds of silence. I typically build an ad hoc playlist of podcasts to play during my bicycling rides. It would be very annoying to have to stop, unclip, and skip past the silence to the next podcast.

  2. Hi Mark, yes it’s well worth a visit!

    Thanks for the link to the Etruscan podcast. I’ve had a listen and it’s great. I listen to a lot of In Our Time, but missed that one.

    We’re still thinking about adding some kind of music, but we’re still on catch-up mode after a disastrous six weeks. It might be coming early in 2013.
