Entertaining and informative

Even though I’m not a speaker, teacher or preacher, I very much enjoy listening in on Darren and Mark’s conversations. I always glean value; such as ‘Try to be more interested (in others) than interesting’. That’s definitely an area I can stand to improve in! Anyway, just wanted to say thanks guys! You’re easy and enjoyable to listen to!
