If you’re a regular listener you will know I prefer to do these conversations in person. I apologise in advance for slightly tinny audio from Bruce’s end – the recording software is a bit hit and miss compared to when you are in the same room! Nonetheless it’s certainly not the worst audio I have heard and the information is tremendously insightful.
