Hi, this was the first podcast of yours that I have listened to and I thought there was some really interesting stuff discussed, thank you. Nothing that would take a tech-enthusiast by surprise, but I did appreciate the NZ angle on all the topics, especially NFC and UFB. I also liked the fact that you didn't take sides with/against any telco (disclaimer: I work at a telco).
If I may offer you some constructive feedback? I found the huge number of 'ah's, 'um's and 'you know's very distracting, to the point that I don't think I'll listen to another. I didn't run a tally, but perhaps you would like to have a re-listen to your work here and do this?
Anyway, thanks again for your great research work, and good luck with fine-tuning the presentation in future.
