Hi Ran, I am Frank tuning in from Belgium. During the commutes to work I so much enjoy listening to the CMPod podcasts. The mixture between technology, science, history and a bit of drama makes them really fantastic podcasts and frankly I forget all about my long commute.
I must admit I am happy Kelly is back on the show. Listening is … easier that way. The ‘dialogue’ between you guys stays a nice mix though. And hey, it is of course all about the content, and as the writer that’s all credit to you.
Please keep it up, I am looking forward to every new episode!!!
Thanks, Frank! Great to hear we’re helping you pass the time on your way to work… 🙂 Kelly is amazing, and I’m working hard on getting to her level 😉 Ran
Hi Ran, one can hear you are working on it. I noticed during the episode on Indo-European language part 1 (again a great episode by the way!). But don’t work to hard it: your way of speaking/accent makes you really special!! Don’t try to loose that 😉
And thank you for the short message at the end of the last show. I was sitting in my car on the way back from work and I can assure you I had the biggest smile ever when I got home 🙂 :-). Of course I made my wife and two kids (15 & 16) listen to it right away!!
All the best,
🙂 Thanks, Frank! glad you liked you’re small cameo in the episode.. I’ll keep the accent, I’m sure of it… 😉 Ran
