  1. any plans to turn this series into a podcast? Might make it easier to consume (I think it would for me anyways). The video component is nice but might not really be necessary for everyone (again, me!)

    1. You, like me, recognize that it’s mostly about the audio, but this is 2015, almost 2016, and content without video is mostly passé. Plus, audio has no real challenge! 🙂


      1. I think audio still has a place in 2016 🙂 Look at the popularity of podcasts, especially hits such as Serial and Radiolab.

        But more importantly, I see no reason why there can’t be both versions!

        1. There is no reason there can’t be both versions, other than I’m buying a house! 🙂 It probably should happen.
