This podcast has been permanently in my top 3 since I found it a couple of years ago. Educational, Entertaining, Funny, Useful and worth listening to many episodes multiple times. Brett is my favourite podcast host for his intelligence, open and well balanced position and thinking on things, his sense of humour, communication and production skills. Last but not least his mini 'Impressions' tutorials are priceless
