    Exiting times at OmW! I am currently changing the format to in person conversations. As this requires a new skill-set to be learned and the guest-list to be changed, it results in fewer episodes at the current moment. I believe it brings quite a change in output quality though and I hope that also comes across. I would appreciate your feedback on this, either per PM or in the Episode Q&A (on Spotify only).

    Thank you for listening!
