    I want to add something important about your initial debate. I don’t know about internal sales taxes in the US, but VAT IS added by Amazon already. When you buy from Denmark, VAT of 25% is added to your purchase.
    It also makes it easier for tax authorities to handle Amazon packages, and obviously gets it delivered much faster.

    I wanted to post my thoughts on the Host Spotlights. It think that it is a good addition to the podcast and look forward to hearing more.

    After listening to the comments on Amazon affiliates and state taxes, I am so glad we don’t have convoluted systems like that in Australia – sales tax/GST consistent right across the country. Makes this so much easier.
    Also, host spotlights were good – keep it going
