  1. Another great episode, Damien. As a lover of spiders and harvestmen, which he correctly noted are not spiders, I was particularly drawn to Andy MacGregor’s poetry and his wonderful music too. I continue to be amazed and enthralled by the wide range of poetry styles and subject to which you are exposing your listeners. Your final poem really grabbed me too–I can hardly wait for your entire Paris collection to emerge, a collection which quite obviously will reflect your inner landscape as well as that of the city.
