    Hi all,
    If you tuned in or have downloaded the podcast, thank you very much for listening to the ideas of this young buck.
    Apologies for the technical problems. Rebecca cuts out at 8:45 and comes back at 9:30 then myself at 33:00 and I come back in at 36:05 before dropping out just before the end at 50:40.
