This episode
A trip to the southern coast of Sweden inspired me to do a podcast about wading on slippery surfaces in still and running water. Unfortunately the recorder broke down (drowned!) after a few minutes of recording, so most of the podcast is actually recorded in the harbor of Copenhagen.

PS: I'm sorry about the cell phone noise and the clicking sounds (from my zipper near the microphone) heard in part of the podcast. I have spent some time trying to edit it out, but it can still be heard.
I will make an effort to avoid such sources of noise in the future.

Images for this day's podcast
Asger in the sunset - The action in the surface would generally increase when the sun was setting.

Wading staff in use - When the bottom is slippery, a wading staff is a very good help

Last cigarette? - Sean ligthing what may well be his last smoke ever. Hard pressed by the Frying Pan waters he calmly lights a cigarette. His next step might well be a wet one.
