  1. What a lovely interview: Hannah was wonderful. Commonsense and joyful. The discussion about working with clients and saving them from being too hasty was very grounded. It was an effective counterpoint to other (albeit interesting) metaphysical discussions in this series around permaculture design process. Leavening! The design images and photographs filled out the the story beautifully too.] Good work.

  2. Interesting podcast but maybe let the guest speak more to follow their thoughts to a natural conclusion, you seem to interrupt quite a bit. Also, try to avoid saying “yes, ya, yep” etc. in agreement as it breaks up the flow a lot. Just some suggestions. Great job!

    1. Thanks Spencer and thanks for those tips – figuring this out as I go along and I really appreciate these kinds of honest impressions I can incorporate into future episodes.
