Today is ESL Podcast’s five-year anniversary. It’s hard for us to believe that we have produced more than 600 ESL Podcast episodes and over 250 English Cafe episodes!
As always, we thank you, our wonderful listeners for sticking with (staying with; continuing with) us. We would like to especially thank our donors and Learning Guide members, who are the true ESL Podcast heroes. Without you, we could not do the work that we do. Thank you for your continued support!
To celebrate our fifth anniversary, we have produced the Fifth Anniversary Video Podcast. In it, you will see how Jeff spends his day. We hope you enjoy it!
~ Jeff, Lucy, and the entire ESL Podcast Team
Welcome to English as a Second Language Podcast’s Fifth Anniversary Video. You know, a lot of people ask me what I do for a living, and I tell them I’m a podcaster. And they say, “But, Jeff, what do you actually do all day?” This video will answer that question.
I’m up! I’m up! Time to work!
Well, I start my morning with my favorite drink, a good, hot tea at my favorite cafe, Starbucks. Here we go!
Oh, hi! I’m starting my day answering e-mail. Just let you finish this one e-mail.
?”Dear President Obama,
Thank you for your question.
If there is time I will explain the meaning of Mickey Mouse ears on our next English Café.” (He’s always writing me!)
“P.S. Please don’t write so often. I have a podcast to run.”
Well, that’s enough work for this morning. Let’s go get some lunch!
Well it’s lunchtime, and I’m hungry. You know, I always eat a healthy meal, nothing but the most healthy food for me. Here I go.
“Hello? Lucy! Oh, right…no, I’m working very hard. I’ve almost finished that podcast. Oh, absolutely! Oh, I’ll have it to you first thing in the morning. Okay, thanks for calling.” I can never get any sleep in this job.
Well, I’m done working now, and when I’m done working, I like to relax and watch my favorite baseball team, the Los Angeles Dodgers. I have my Los Angeles Dodgers cup, my hat, and of course my shirt. Baseball, as you know, is one of the great American sports, and I think, uh…goooooooooool!
Well, it’s evening time now and I try to relax a little by reading a good book. There are lots of good books out there. The one I’m reading is pretty interesting. It’s an excellent book and the author, I think, is, well, pretty smart.
Well it’s time for bed, but before I go, I want to thank all of you who listen to ESL Podcast. This is our fifth anniversary. I want to thank you for listening over the past year, and hope that you will continue listening for many more years to come. I especially want to thank our donors and our ESL Podcast Learning Guide members. These are the people who help make ESL podcast possible, so thank you especially to those of you who are members or donors.
I also want to thank Adriano, Jessica, Sue, Warren, and all the rest of our ESL Podcast team. A special thanks to our own Dr. Lucy Tse.
Well, it’s time for bed. We’ll see you next year!
