for what it's worth, I am difficult to please in the way of podcast satisfaction. however, your approach to making such perplexing literature understandable for most anyone is truly amazing. please continue your efforts. each episode shows growth of experience and its heartening to hear how much more comfortable you seem with every installment. I too adore and admire Jack Luna. DT was the very first podcast I had ever heard which is why my expectations are so lofty. I don't know if you even actually read all these comments but Castbox has no way to leave a "review" that I know of. keep doing what you do because if you can make Moby Dick relateable to me, there is almost nothing you can not do
