    Thank you for the episode. Awesome as always.

    Can I please request that you make the guest frame the episode in the first 2-3 minutes in future episodes. The guest went into great but technical detail until the 8 minute mark, which was incredibly hard to follow because I had no overarching knowledge of what he was trying to describe.

    If Mark Steele started the interview with ‘5G produces very harmful radiation and the government is rolling out this technology now. I know it’s harmful because …” then everything would have made perfect sense, but because you didn’t interrupt him early enough I got completely and utterly lost during the first 8 minutes.

    Again, thanks to Marsh and Mark Steele for the podcast, this was very interesting.

    Listening to this reminded me of the Sunday mornings of my youth when I’d find myself still awake when the Open University programmes came on, and with nothing else to watch I’d sit and be completely confused by the technical discussions.

    I found it interesting that he kept on saying that 5G technology was untested, but we know all of these dangerous side effects because its being tested on unwitting university students.

    Also, I used to work with engineers who deal with multi-Ghz frequencies and optical engineers, but I have never heard an optical engineer refer to anything as being multi-terahertz. Sure, its technically true, but it looses meaning. If a person says they are ding research into wavelengths between 5 and 400nm then everybody knows whats going on.
