The audio cuts off at the end too early. It's been happening with all the recent posts.

Eric, Great to hear your thoughts and your voice. It's been a long time. Well spoken, and Ken is right, you ARE a prince! And a designer's designer.

I love this. I've had both professors at SVA, they are both so professional.
Eric has this teeny bit of crassness that i remember from 5 years ago and that's what made him so memorable!

Changing lives.
