Great podcast as usual 😁

@Ed Selley , listening to Kölsch as I'm writing this. Good find, and being danish myself, it's nice to know "we" can actually make good music in this country 🤘🏻

Great show, thanks all.

Nice to hear some reviews of kit that seems to “do what it says on the tin”, at various price points. Good point about Samsung & Dolby Vision, consumers less happy with glaring holes in the spec sheet these days.

Have watched the first ep of “The Right Stuff” and quite enjoyed it. Mainly consisted of people introducing themselves and spotting the big names. I do think they’ve cast John Glenn a bit young looking (the actor is the right age technically), and the conceit that he was the humble everyman of the group is a tad ahistorical. When he was elected as a US senator, someone commented “What’s next, king?”.

Finally, Ed, I’ve had a listen to Kölsch but I’ve found it lacks a bit of fizz. I thank you *sad trombone*

The other astronauts certainly considered Glenn to be a bit of a 'Dudly-Do-Right', but what they show demonstrates is that he was also very media savvy, which explains why he moved into politics.

Good listen.

The Mission lx mark 1 had magnetic grilles so they're not new on the mark 2.. it was mentioned '...now have magnetic grilles...'
 
Always delighted to hear people speaking highly of Moana ... such a brilliant movie.
