    Daniel! Loving the podcasts, especially this one on Intarsia. (You should add Intarsia to the tags). One bit of constructive criticism, I can hear lots of thumps in the mic, either from you moving against your mic or someone tapping the table. I get the impression, you’re very animated when you talk, which is adorable. The sound is distracting, though. Thanks for picking the podcast back up. I feel like it went unloved for a little while and I missed it!

      Thanks for the feedback, Lin! We’ll be sure to pay closer attention to that in the future. I do tend to talk with my hands (I’ve been known to knock over drinks. . .) 🙂
