Bude tam na moje pozvanie aj guverner Sramko, Marcincin zo Svetovej banky, Kohutikova z VUB, Oravec zo ZPS, Janci Toth z ING, Ludo Odor a Martin Suster z NBS, Mato Chren, Peto Gonda, Juraj Karpis, Riso Durana, Peto Golias, manzelia Beblavi, Dusan Zachar, Mato Bruncko, prof. Brunovsky atd. atd. Samozrejme z Trendu Miso a Rado Bato bude mat aj exkluzivny rozhovor. :D Myslim, ze jedna osoba by sa tam dala este prepasovat, ale skoda veru, ze si nepovedal skor... vybavili by sme to. Urcite vsak pridi a prinajhorsom si to omrknes v B1.03 alebo B1.04 aj ked to nebude live (jeho prednaska bude v B1.02 a v ostatnych budu zive prenosy).
