    David: thanks for the feedback. Yea, at the time I recorded this episode I was playing around with a program called Crazy Talk and since I’m a big zombie fan I thought maybe it would be fun to put together a video in which it appeared like “zombie freud” delivered the episode. When I look back on this video I also thought that it didn’t come out quite right. Maybe I’ll re-record it. Thanks for taking the time to let me know!
