    Good podcast Jasper – interesting to hear about what you didn’t like. Agree with you about the OTTness of feel good factor/ Peace & Love message that is inherent in their PR/Marketing and would def like to hear their opinions of at least a thought about regulation as a whole as a three-way relationship.

    Anyway hope your well.

    Cheers Chris
