  2. halfway through – this is obviously one for the ages. Loved Denise’s snarky “100 listeners instead of millions” – doesn’t she know you’re famous in the future and the pic of you and Doc Sleaze on the streets of London will be worshipped accordingly?!

  4. Lots of great Denise in this one. Frank should ask her to be on more. Really a nice day with all three. Thanks for this.

  5. Frank This was awesome. Thanks so much. I have been listening to way fewer podcasts in general as I’ve gotten busy with stuff but this Europe series has been on my shortlist to listen to. WOrked my way through Europe 1 over the course of a week. What a pleasure. And as those above have said was a treat to hear more from Denise; and was a great pleasure to hear Doc Sleaze with you guys. Also I enjoyed the Jimbo talk. Reminded me to get back to the “Central.” Excellently I have 4 more Europe’s to take me into autumn.
