    Where can I find the mentioned map? Maybe there’s an incompatibility with my iPhone but your map page looks totally empty.

    1. Hi. I’m sorry for the delay. I have no idea why the maps were playing up. To solve the problem, I have deleted them and added them to the transcript for the episode. I’ve put the link in the show notes above, but you can also go here and just scroll to the bottom.
