  1. Another great podcast. You need to turn up the Audio volume. It’s better to turn the volume down on the radio, or my Ipad then have it set to the top volume and still not hear it. Although on a positive note the volume difference between the interviewer and interviewed is getting better. Each podcast is improving and that is awesome.

    I like the format that is used in this episode- there are some commercials, some homework, some feed back, some prizes, and some back and forth interviews. The content is well put together and well thought out. It makes the content both valuable when listening to it the first time and avail to listen to multiple times to gain nuance info.

    Keep up the great work.
