    @jurgenappelo Liked especially the example of purpose setting when you compared it to “setting a purpose to child” . Otherwise the podcast felt a bit short. So, listened more : http://t.co/pgnZXZXj

  3. The audio on the podcast could really use normalization. Perhaps a sound check on the two mic’s audio record levels before the recording starts. I was either trying really hard to hear the interviewee, or getting my ear drums destroyed by the interviewer. In the end I found a middle ground where I was barely able to ear the interviewee, and hear the interviewer clearly.
