I'm loving your podcast so far Herr Dr, I'm glad someone with your experience and connections decided to make this investment. It has been fun listening to the stories of wargaming in the 70s and 80s through the personal histories of your guests. I'm even liking your selection of music clips and apparently one of the few forgiving listeners on sound quality issues. I hope you are able to continue and would like to send you a small contribution to encourage your efforts!
