    You guys said it at the end of this episode — the unscripted free flow of thoughts and ideas about comets, asteroids, and the oort cloud was so interesting and awesome. It works so much better than a polite and simple Q/A session. This episode was engaging from beginning to end. I wanted it to go on for 3 hours, as you mentioned at the end. Please do more shows like this! Thank you. – Bob
