IBM AR manager extraordinaire John Simonds (Twitter handle) interviewed Carter for his podcast series about AR that he posts on his “Delusions of Adequacy” blog. Topics we discussed were:

- What is a good A/R practice/best practice?
- What is a bad A/R practice or incident that we can learn from (without names)?

It was a fun and interesting discussion. Please visit Podcast: An Analyst’s View of Analyst Relations – Carter Lusher of SageCircle to hear the interview.
