    Just a comment about the podcasts. I would much rather read a blog or a transcript than listen to a podcast. Two reasons, the first is I am a visual person, and the 2nd is that I just do not have the time to lisen. I have loved “The Swarf” since it’s inception, thank you for that.
    Best regards,

    much prefer reading, faster and more informative as you can go back to areas of interest. Too much wasted time in blog.
