  • Another enjoyable podcast, they are like wine and women and improve with time (so my wife tells me) I agree with Neils views about mental strength building, sometimes you have to suffer a bit to get stronger, also regarding the future direction of the podcast, whatever path you choose keep it simple, a bit science is good but commonsense advice on laymans terms is better appreciated as understood :-)
