Rank #7: Deep Talking with Meta-Nomad for Hermitix
Usually, I just link to the relevant site for other podcast interviews, but in this case the quality of my voice was significantly lost due to a shaky internet connection, so I have uploaded my recording here. You can find James’ version here. It is slightly edited for flow and so clocks in a few minutes shorter, and the quality of James’ voice is notably better. Take your pick this Christmas.
I took extra-trouble with this as I think it’s one of the richest interviews I have done to date, due above all to the quality of James’ attention, interest, and questions.
