Definitely one of the better podcasts.  Nice to take a break from the “culture war” and do something outside the box.  Entertaining and a few real gems there.  Didn’t agree with Voss when he first said that the use of anger wasn’t really of use during negotiation… until he said remember all the times someone got angry with you… and he’s right.  You don’t want to be around those kind of people.
