    Thanks for a wonderful interview, Brendan. As always, you asked great questions – including several I’d never been asked before. I’ve listened to every episode of The Podcast of Things, so it was an honour to appear as a guest.

      It was a pleasure Nick. Thank you for coming to the Central Coast and catching up after the interview for a bite to eat. I guess you can’t record that one as one of your ‘500 lunches’ as I am no longer a stranger! 🙂
