Informative and useful show. Nice sound quality as well Andrew. You record these in a studio?
GD Auctions has one of the most confusing and convoluted UI’s in the domain space. Kind of funny that it is so active imo. It is a like a domain jungle of not knowing what came from where and how to handle what. Funny that Paul thinks the same thing. Surprised there has been little movement on this since this podcast was posted.
