  • Wow - so good

    I have had this on 'my list' for a while, but sadly, until now, I haven't really made it to the top of my queue. Listened to e125, and found my self rushing to write notes to find the references - so much relevance. The paradox of this episode at least is that it was both wide ranging and highly focussed. Thanks
