  1. Another excellent episode! I have so many things I want to say, but I don’t think they’d add much to the insights offered by you and your guests. This is one of the few podcast series where I find myself discussing along with you in my head while I listen.

  2. I really do enjoy this podcast series, intelligent, informative, great guests, everything.
    I also think it’s awesome you got Keanu Reeves on the show! How the heck did you pull that one off?
