    I just finished listening to the podcast with the interviews with Len’s grandson James. At first I thought, this is going to be like looking at someone’s vacation pictures. They may find it interesting but, after a while it becomes tedious.

    I couldn’t have been more wrong! It was a delight listening to James. As a matter of fact, I found that I was disappointed when his interview concluded. What a pleasure to hear such a smart and engaging young man. It was wonderful listening to him read and to hear the excitement in his voice.
