  1. I have a suggestion. How about starting the conversation with a slower speed and then repating it with a normal speed at the end of the video? I must admit that this is Jeff McQuillan's approach in his podcast.
    That said, I'm satisfied with the fact that your podcast is usually short. This makes me concentrate better.

  2. Every time, Learning more from this site, that means I am not a lazybones.To be active in this site :we, the learners have to get off our tails or Stop bumming around home!
    Michael, Are deadbeats usually Lazying around Parks and Squares? thanks!
