One note regarding sound quality of this recording. We noticed some degrading of quality in some parts of the show. We’re not sure what the cause is—whether it’s Skype-related or our recording software—as we haven’t encountered this before. We hope it doesn’t spoil your listening experience, and we plan to have identified the cause and addressed it by next week.

Until later this week from Napa, California, and then next week’s regular show,
