    Yet another great interview. I’m a huge fan of the podcast and have been since episode #3. As someone who has made their living in audio for 40 years I truly appreciate your well rounded approach and your real world questions for real world guests. Not just a few elite engineers. I have spent my career working in smaller locales for my and my families sake and your balance of work and home ethics resonates deeply with me. Thanks again for all your efforts.
