I enjoyed this but it did worry me, Rob stated how lucky he was to be born into a civilised society, what pays for our society is our taxes and yet Rob goes on to encourage everyone to avoid paying taxes, "legally" however is it moral, the more, clever people avoid there taxes means the less clever have to pay more. why can't we all be happy to contribute an even, reasonable amount to society to enrich our lives This is like the opposite analogy of Robin Hood robing the poor to feed the rich!

Hi Mo I really enjoy your podcast and particularly this one. I had an interesting thought when Hannah grilled you on your need for a woman to be spiritual, I felt you answered later maybe without realising when you said anything that is not spiritual is not complete, so with that thought it is obvious you need a partner that is spiritual, we have to value our partners and how can you value them if your feeling, right or wrong, is that they are not complete. btw, I agree with your view on it.
