  1. Not that comments are taken into account for the show’s production, but:

    I find Derek’s jargon-laden rambles, unnecessary repetitions, and lame jokes distracting from the general discussion. I don’t know if anyone else agrees, but I’d prefer more air-time for Alastair, who concisely and cogently continues the conversation in a way that sheds light on the book and the ideas therein. Either there should be greater prep for the podcast, or allow more adept speakers (namely, Alastair) more time to form the contours of the discussion.


      1. I didn’t pull any punches, but thanks for receiving it graciously.
