    I like the podcast. I knew about it for a long time but had a problem to find time to listen…problem solved – I downloaded all episodes from the real beginning and listen to you in car :-) I hope to “catch” you in a half of a year or so ;-)
    I love all book recommendations, it a pity I can´t get most of them here in east Europe.
