Wow, thank you Patrick. This is better than going to Cornell for 4 years to listen to Altgelt. I am listening to all his programs where you’ve had him on. This guy is AMAZING.
Sometimes you guys hit the Super Jackpot with your guests, and this is one such. The info about boron is like striking gold for me. Too bad you don’t have transcripts of these broadcasts in particular, because there’s so much here that it would be really helpful.
