Travis/// ,

Fantastic work and thank you for growing this community

I appreciate the work that is put into this podcast, even the superb audio quality. I enjoy learning about the historical arcs of the guests and the range of different fields and applications of controls is interesting. No matter the guest or their background, your curiosity guides the conversation to fun topics. More episodes please!
