Loved this episode. Bought the snapscan and Brooks video on how to use Hazel effectively – which was a real godsend since the publishers have a limited resource on their site.

Great episode.

Guys, your podcast is really cool, but the episodes are released too fast ! I can’t keep up with the pace. :)
