    Thank you, Simon. I really enjoyed this interview and, like Mark above, was quite taken with his personal story and approach.

    I have just had the pleasure of listening to this podcast. I have and use Pumping Nylon, and it is great to hear a little of the back story of why it was prepared, and some of Scott’s background. The piece at the end was so very cool.
