    Hi Chris – I am fan of your podcast and I really learn a lot from your solo shows as well as the interview shows. Keep up the great work. In particular, I really like your year-end book and documentary review. I am definitely going through your list to pick my reading list for next year.

    Just a quick question though – you seem like a really busy guy with a business to run and a regular podcast production. How do you manage to find the time to read all these books?

    Thanks and all the best.
