  1. uhm.. David…what happened to your sound at the begining of she show? Are you using a mutli-compresser ratio encoder? Sound gets better…. anyhow…. I only bring this up because your sound is usually spot on

    Also… keep up the great work… I love your show…

  2. Hi David,
    I’ve recently discovered your podcast and really enjoy it. I was able to catch up on a few today at work. But I’ll sure not get around to going back to #1 like some folks do as you mentioned.

    I liked your essay about sticking with one yarn to get to know how it behaves. Not that I’d ever do that…but I like the idea.
