This week Phyllis returns to discuss the differences between Western thinking and Eastern thinking. Her knowledge really is astounding.
Unfortunately, the recording equipment really doesn't like the Agnes-Phyllis connection as this week's episode is a bit problematic too, but like last week, it's so worth listening through.
