Excellent content elegantly presented to basically a lay audience

I joined late and want to revisit the recording once posted. What I did hear was great! Very informative...maybe a tad bit technical for me, but will take more time to review what is posted to absorb it better. Thanks for providing this information. There is a lot of misinformation out there and having experts talk on the topic is helpful.

Thanks for a very thoughtful presentation on the topic.
