PS: I apologize for the poor sound quality of this episode. With the howling wind, newly discovered room echo (that's what I get for cleaning the home office), and my emotional state after I recorded the main topic, I didn't clean up the audio like I should. Better next time. Your feedback, as always, is most welcome. - Kevin.
