    Mark, I finally got the chance to listen to one of your podcasts all the way through. I know how hard it is to produce a monologue instead of a conversation between two speakers. When I originally podcast on OHS over 8 years ago I found the interview format to be more comfortable. In Cabbage Salad & Safety I decided that I still liked the way information is communicated through conversation but instead of interviewing a range of people I settled on a conversation with the same safety lawyer, Siobhan Flores-Walsh.

    It’s a little more complex to arrange recording times but I am hoping the contrast between a safety lawyer and a safety professional adds depth to our OHS conversations.

    Thanks for mentioning Cabbage Salad & Safety. When you listen to the amount of safety information available through this podcast format, you wonder why this wasn’t a regular feature, perhaps on radio, years ago.
