  1. Is it just me, or was there some annoying low frequency sound in the background, like they were sitting just outside a dubbing theater?

  2. Very cool interview. Captivating even if it’s only two people talking in chairs. This should be a series of very deep and cozy interviews. I love it. keep doing it !!
