  1. So good to hear Clara! Clara, you should come back and do some of your own podcasts; they were always fun and interesting.

    Thanks for the “cicada shoutout”…

  2. Thanks Jimbo : ). I’ve passed it onto Clara. She’s convinced she’s uninteresting and boring, both of which I’ve said have never stopped me HIVEN GLAVEN.

    The cicadas here put Australia to shame. I think I started getting a headache from them, they were that loud. Either that or heatstroke, one or the other.

  3. Heatstroke for sure.

    Sorry, I just find it very difficult to talk into a microphone without someone else present to oil the conversation! Infinitely easier when chatting away with Ruben. If I find another face-to-face partner to chat with, I’ll be back on the air. 🙂

  4. Hey Clara! You need a robot. 😉

  5. Actually, the Overnightscape Central, perhaps, was made for you! The next one has to do with “Aha Moments”. We’d all welcome your participation. No one is asking for 30 minutes. Lots of people talk for 10 minutes or less.

    See you on the Central!
