    Great interview Andy- glad you didn’t avoid any of the “controversial” topics.

      Thanks, Dan

      Ed Mitchell was probably the most interesting person I’ve ever met. A very enjoyable interview with a unique man. Glad you enjoyed it too. If you would like to listen to the entire interview, it’s in the 365daysofastronomy archives.
