      Some constructive criticism: you should edit this down and use an audio compressor. I can barely hear David in my car and the whole thing is very quiet. 2 hours long is a huge barrier to uptake outside the most hardcore shackers who don't already have a dozen+ hours of podcasts in their normal weekly queue. The entire first 7:07 could be cut to start. You might do better have a specific format with time-boxed segments to keep things in order.
