One False Move
Now we begin the (relatively brief) period of time when Ilya started doing minute-to-minute play-by-plays of our discussion. I will be copy/pasting them down below the audio.
These early episodes are not available on Apple Podcasts anymore, so I’ve taken the liberty for anyone who wants to listen of making sure the archive.org links still work. You can listen right here on the website or download the MP3 below.
