  • Superb tribute to Roger Swan. By the end of the show I had watched several of his videos, visited the website of his university and uncovered things about his life that I would never had learned if not for your podcast. You\'ve done a great thing, and I\'m glad that I\'ve had the opportunity to learn about what a wonderful young man he surely was. Thanks for all the time and energy you put into was a compelling experience from beginning to end.

  • Rob summed up my experience exactly. I\'d read the show notes before the episode had finished so I knew something bad was coming but it still hit me hard. Had to stop listening at the first eulogy to wipe some tears away and compose myself. Thanks again for your efforts, Keith.

  • I am half way through this episode and I must say that I really like this Roger Swan character. I hope nothing bad ever happens to him.

  • This is your best show yet. I had never heard of Rodger, got to know him, like him and then lose him, all in about an hour. thank you for sharing his life.

  • Great show. I thought it was a joke at first when the first eulogy started, I guess that was how a lot of people felt. The last half really reminded me of Letter From China, an audio podcast a guy did while he taught ESL in China. He also died, and the last chapter consists of his students\' farewell letters to him.
