Fantastic! I found this really helpful. just a suggestion, though - please add the size of works being described. Onement 1 is tiny compared to, say, Vir Heroicus Sublimis, and that makes a difference

Great video interview! I really learned a lot, and I love the casual format of the dialog - it makes the information come alive in the moment, in contrast to reading something in a book or magazine.
