  1. Hi guys,

    Thanks for answering the question about the T-shirts Phil, though I forgot to mention that when I first checked the price, the T-shirts were priced at $0.00 – that’s why I thought they were a bit cheap!

    I see they’re back to $20 now but I’ll still get one, interested in seeing new designs too – how about a competition where listeners submit ideas?

    Leo, have a cup of tea on me – the extra $2 is for the sugar and milk!

  2. i think i just realised that jay town is the best part of the photogeek podcast!
    he is excellent.
    and leo is a brilliant addition to the team.
    good show this week. thanks!
