  1. Listening to this I remember how much I was shifting gears in my head. Wim and I know this stuff and we have the background information to understand simple answers. He’d say something and I’d start answer him then realize “Oh wait, the audience needs to know A, B and C before they’d understand why “It depends” actually is the best and most accurate answer.

    • I think it came out OK for the listeners. The feedback so far has been very positive, so hopefully the information got through correctly.

  2. It was extremely interesting. I was just going to check out the first couple of minutes, but ended up grabbing a cup of coffee and listen through it all. Thank you!

  3. Good interview! I now have the books too. Good stuff :)
