A quick note before we get into the episode: this week's episode is a bit shorter than usual. Recording, editing, and uploading the podcast takes some time out of our days and from other parts of our work that we also need to do. We have a few ideas as to how we can deliver the podcast going forward, but we'd like to hear your thoughts on how you'd like to see us carry out the podcast in the future. Thank you for your support.
