    Hi Mary and Freddie
    I discovered your Albert Bates interview via the Transition Town folks here in UK. I’ll be recording a talk he’s giving here and wondered if I could load up your interview too on traydio? (I’d have to edit out the copyright music).
    BTW feel free to use any content on traydio in your shows it’s all CC3.0 licensed…
