Welcome and thanks for the great first episode.
Like you said, lisps are super-powerful languages that are fun to program with. I feel like lisp is perfect language to write the language you will use to solve your problem with.
When I was coding in lisp (for hobby), I often wrote my program in language I wished I had and then added needed features to language I had with macros.

I thought this was a great episode and the reading didn't bother me at all, your enthusiasm for lisps still came through. Made me want to check into one of them!

I have been a fan of LISPs for years. I haven't considered playing with Clojure until you mentioned it, so that's the next plan.
Great first episode.
