Dan Ilic 0:00 G'day there, Dan Ilic here with a rational fear lite this week. Yes, it is a light version just me and a guest. You'll meet them in just a second. Just kind of warming up for the next 10 weeks of regular recording. It's going to be exciting. I think we might have a sponsor as well. So next week, I'll tell you all about that on a rational fear. In the meantime, I'm recording irrational fear on the land of the Gadigal. In the urination, sovereignty was never seated, we need a treaty. Let's start the show.

Sarah Wilson 2:23 No, not at all. Not at all. I mean, nothing's changed. It's just that I'm not caught up in the tedium of running a business, which is just not my thing, right? And also a commitment I made to myself, blah, blah, blah, that when it made a certain amount of money, I gave it all away.
