Fantastic coffee-break listening

Short, sweet, succinct, pragmatic and delivered with humility. Perfect with a coffee.

Easy to digest, an interesting range of cases, theme music that slaps.

Brilliant and easy to follow

Spending a lot of time in my car with you in my ear now.

With the rate I’m getting through these you will need to move to two or three a week.

Keep up the great work

Regards
