Thank you for this outstanding interview! Having Tom in the interviewed chair instead of the interviewer chair was BOOM! I think Tom is the real deal of getting people out of the Matrix.

Once again I am genuinely thankful that you did this interview and will be checking out the other interviews you have done, you got mad skills!
