    I love hearing Arthur talk. I look forward to part two.

  2. Casey Says:

    It takes much courage to leave your home country for someone you have only been with for two weeks. Can’t wait to hear more.

  3. Tim Corrimal Says:

    Hey Ramble,
    Great interview with Arthur. His story is so interesting. I would love to meet him in person one of these days. We should all go to Podcamp New Zealand.

  4. Arthur (AmeriNZ) Says:

    Wow, this has got to be your most interesting guest ever–wait a minute, I did put “Anonymous” for the commenter identity, didn’t I?

    Seriously, thanks for having me on the show–it was a lot of fun!

    Oh, and I think Podcamp New Zealand would be a great idea!

    An interesting story. But I’m astounded by his comment that only after e-mailing and talking on the phone that they thought they wanted to be together – BEFORE they met!

    That is a strong virtual connection.

    And then their whole life to be decided on after only 14 days together. This is amazing — and who says romance is dead?!

    And what a condemnation of the US that Arthur could go to NZ and be recognized as a gay partner because it is not possible in the “land of the free and the brave.”

    Great interview with Arthur. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to part deux. I’m a sucker for romantic stories!

  7. epilonious Says:

    Glad to hear it (obviously) all worked out for him. It sounded like one of those rare moments and he made a great choice 😀

  8. Ian M Says:

    Great story and having been a part of the British Empire I enjoyed the English words!!! Look forward to part 2.

    I’ve heard Arthur on many of the various podcasts out there. I’m not a regular listener of his, and my reasoning is, perhaps, a bit shallow. He’s so damn smart! I just can’t hang with that! I also hate that people in other countries have more knowledge of what’s going on in American government when folks in our own country don’t even know what’s going on. Yes, I realize he’s from here, but after being in NZ for 14 years, he’s been gone long enough to be considered a NZ native!

    I love listening to his story of trying to go to his first gay “meeting”. I can just picture him trolling the pay phone. And yes, I was one of “those listeners” who had a great big “awwww” when he discussed his first meeting with Nigel.

    What an interesting, courageous life he has had. Thanks for introducing him to me.
