I enjoyed very much listening to the program and was catches with Dr youngner’s viewpoints.
Thank you and keep doing that
I enjoyed your interview of Dr. Youngner. I did not know about his
early years, specially during his days in the army.
I worked with Dr. Youngner as a post- doc for almost 7 years in the
1960’s-1970’s. I will email him and tell him how much I enjoyed

So sad to hear that Prof Youngner passed a slightly a year after this episode. One of my favourite episodes. Thank you Vincent for this gem of an interview.
