Prophetic

Always enjoyable to listen too. Lawrence was heavily involved in production of The West Wing. You can see amazing correlation between TWW and Trump playbook.

Enjoy...

Always good listening. Enjoy Rachel (and handover) followed by Lawrence - rounded off by Brian. The one irritation; Lawrence saying who is joining him and the rundown on their background employ...Lawrence needs to slow down.
