    That was very interesting.

    It kind of amused me this time that both you guys have the most steorotypical “shrink voices” imaginable. They’re so rich, emotional and thoughtful.

    And it was pretty funny at the beginning when you were reading out Dr Naimans qualifications, it took approximately 10 minutes, he’s a really successful guy.

    Thanks for the podcast!
