    Great podcast, David. Informative, and what a good interview Uwe gives. I know him a bit personally, and it’s wonderful that your listeners will be able to hear how he glides effortlessly between really funny anecdotes, a deep wealth of technical information and the soul of a philosopher when it comes to how and why we gravitate towards our silver palaces. Thanks for a great show.
