Really enjoy it!

I really enjoy this podcast- I don’t speak Haskell but I really appreciate how its contributed to the community and I thought in particular learning about Diagrams and about Lenses was very informative. Funny story was that I was joking with someone out a “HaskellScript” and then the last episode…. well…. I mean… Only complaint: more frequent podcasts! (also, more Simon Peyton Jones?!)
