    A voice in the darkness. Shimmering illusions of the deep web. Our 26th podcast, the decoded recording of a scrambled artificial intelligence or the ravings of an unhinged and distorted mind? You decide, in the second instalment of Leisure Mysteries. Join me in my dream. My trip to fantasy. All here is quiet and peaceful. Don’t be afraid. Feel one with the universe. Afloat on the waves.
