Good stuff - for future ones, would love to get better sound quality...
Jarlath, really enjoying this series, obviously influenced by Stuart Goldsmith (and yours was one of his best, btw). Hearing you brings back memories of monthly greeting cards and local papers at The Balor in Donegal! One observation, I'm not an expert on graphic equalisation and all that, but the volume seems very low compared to other podcasts. Apart from that, excellent!
A Great Listen
A proper good podcast. Cant wait for more. You know.
