Ross Welcome to Renegade Inc. On this programme, we talk with some of our Renegade Inc. friends and ask them about what surprised them over the last year and, as importantly, what they foresee happening in 2022. Strap in, it's about to get interesting. Ross Dr Ashley Frawley, wonderful to have you back on the programme. Ashley Frawley Thank you so much for having me. Ross Ashley, tell us what shocked you in 2021? What surprised you? What ambushed you, and you thought, Wow, I didn't see that coming? Ashley Frawley I don't know.
