Rude guest

I started the podcast listening to episode 104 with Matt Inglot. He had an interesting perspective on identifying your best clients, but unfortunately when Jane would ask him a question, he'd start to talk over her before she had finished. Great way to kill his rep for me. I hope the rest of the guests have more respect for Jane than he does.
