Please bring Inside PR back after the summer. I really appreciate your efforts.
What I would like for you to do more, is to share practical advice drawn from your own experience.
I loved your show on ethics as it was obviously inspired by your own challenges in that area.
If you bring the show back I promise to send you comments almost every week.
