  1. Bloody awesome pod cast! Gidget would love to know more about your late father! One of my favourite 80’s movies and for a 3 hour movie PLUS trivia you both did an amazing job. Will listen to more of your pod casts now. Saw Gidgets tweet about it and was stoked. I could not find those brilliant gifs on google? Where did you get them? Cheers.

  2. Thanks so much Paul!!! So kind. I have a video of my late father talking about his time in WW2. Once I find it I will link it to you! Again thanks for listening.

  3. Outstanding pod cast. I listened with my grandfather. It was his first time listening to a pod cast and asked me to ask you to pod cast more war/military movies. His name is Bob Fennelly. He turns 97 in December.
