When Gary asked me whether I would like to be interviewed for this pod cast I was a little unsure as I have been misquoted and taken out of context a few times by journalists but I have to say he did everything he said he was going to do and very professionally. 

He asked some good questions and allowed me to answer in my own way . 

Not sure about my waffle but Gary was right on the ball.

probably not, so much free content out there.

I did pin it for a couple of weeks on that facebook page though, so hopefully that got you some useful traffic.
