    This episode was extremely informative (and needless to say excellent). The concepts were introduced and explained very well. I didn’t need to look at any images (couldn’t because I listen to your podcasts on my daily commute) to know what you were referring to - your verbal descriptions were more than adequate. Thank you for making the topic coherent. Also, I meant to rate this particular episode 5/5 not 4/5 - that happened accidentally. And since this is my first comment on any of your podcasts, I do want to add that I can’t thank you enough for your summarization of so many varied concepts in your podcasts.
