Can we have more episodes

I love this podcast and Im hoping to get more episodes

Excellent, but….

I love this podcast but I wish the narrator would keep his voice better modulated. His voice goes very quiet to the point of needing to up the volume. Then his voice explodes to make a dramatic point. Maybe this is nitpicky but it’s the reason for four stars instead of five.

Barry’s awesome - will now have to read his books. The podcasts are so well presented, and naturally he knows a ton - so much fun, jumping for joy here.
