    Just listening to David Freudberg’s voice is a good start, no matter the topic. I highly recommend picking out some topics or interviewees you think would be interesting and you’ll be hooked.

That’s how I feel about David Freudberg and how much I’d enjoy being in his presence and soaking in some of his knowledge and kindness.
