    The Bob Patton interview looks interesting, but it continuously is interrupted by buffering. Can you repost this video to correct that? I checked out other videos and they streamed smoothly.
    Thanks, I’d like to watch it without the glitches.

    Hi toadflax,

    Sorry the vid was working poorly for you.

    The show is also available on YouTube here if this one works better for you.

    Thanks for writing.

    Cheers,

    Yale.
