Matthew Ward writes reviews of audio listening equipment for Macworld and TechHive. He knows his stuff. What I found most interesting was his ability — despite being an “audiophile” — to look beyond price and find true quality in inexpensive products. I could stand to learn a thing or two about that.

The conversation included some talk about his “other” job working in scientific writing and Computational Biology, as well as whiskey and bi-polar issues. Good times.
