*Note: set 2 suffers from the technical error of me forgetting to turn off the microphone. Fortunately and surprisingly, I am not caught talking to myself or saying or revealing anything at all. It just sounds muffled. Further amazement: this happened sober. You can skip from the 32nd minute to 51:30.
