      Adam,

      I fully intended to give you credit during the closing of the show for recommending Josh as an interview subject. I just realized that I forgot! I’ll make sure to do so during the opening of the next show. Cheers!

        No worries David,
        it seemed like a natural progression after your interview with Donald as I know he spent a lot of time with Terry and Josh , that was really well done how you blended the audio of Terry’s interviews with Donald and Josh’s stories together , Look out Ira Glass ! your killing it David !
        Again Big thanks for putting such killer content up for free !
        Mega-Shaka,
