s3e27: It’s Difficult 

0.0 Station Ident 11:18am on Friday, 9 September 2016. I am not at the XOXO Festival introduction because I have spent the last hour in a conference call going through (important) minutiae in the statement of work of one of my contracts. One point of view on this would be to take the view that […]
