  1. Dear David,

    I love your podcast. I have been listening from the beginning so am only up to show 27. I heard the WWKIP show on this years date and since I was stuck at work, I felt I was participating none the less.

    I have a suggestion for the website. Since I am so far behind, could there be a search function or a button to go back to a specific show’s notes or to a section of shows? I have to scroll to the bottom of the page to get to the previous entries button multiple times. I have no idea if this is even possible but it would be great.

    I should be caught up in a few weeks and then I fear I will be going through S and S withdrawal. I’m not sure how I will adjust to having a single show per week.

    Thanks for all your work, it is great!
