Bouncing around this week, I recorded this podcast in the bathroom of the Stamford, CT Marriott. Visiting St Louis’s Gateway Arch, we talk about wedging a bit of personal tourism into a packed business itinerary, how people keep mistaking physical closeness with personal closeness, and recounting some stories about mistakes even before the trip starts. Here’s a direct link to the podcast file.
