    Love to listen to the Podcasts.Thanks! Maybe just one suggestion for these awesome lengthy ones could be to include timings for when each new section is starting to make it easier to find specific sections when re-listening to them.

    Ian, would you please provide a link or details of the article that you and Zach Bitter were discussing about 'speed depreciation' over longer distances(Ian Sharman had contributed to it). Thanks.
