Mr. Puoskari ,

Great podcast

If you’re a fan of TED talks, you will fall in love with this podcast. Approximately one hour of mind evolving interviews with different speakers from TED stage. It’s host is well prepared for each person and leads the show in precise and highly professional way.
It’s just a pity you can’t join them and debate on topics together. Anyway, listening to this it’s well spent time.
