2020 was a year of firsts, this week one of those firsts intrudes on the podcast. Some sort of equipment error destroyed the first 8 ish minutes of the recording was lost. Actually lost was not a perfect description, in your mind picture a high-pitched screech. Then it was gone and the rest of the discussion was wonderful.  I have chopped out the ear killing screech and we pick up late in the first question with Chris Hurney and go from there!
