We've been releasing episodes weekly since May 2020 and have built up quite a bit of content and insights from guests all over the world.  The episodes and show notes are available to Patreon subscribers.  We occasionally release an episode from the library when it fits the content schedule, or when we just don't feel like recording something new :).
