    Man , 
    Eslpod is amazing!!!
    Every week ,we get a slew of quality English lessons without lifting a finger. What makes it more interesting is  that one  can get to it anytime one wants even at wee hours when  one is sleepless.
    I m Listening to Jeff at this ungodly hours.
    I like the cam corder episod. 
    All braging aside ,I m considered by many a fluent speaker of English , still I didn’t  know the term ” voice-over ” until I listened to the eslpod 833 just now. 
    Who am I kidding? I m just deluding myself. I know no squat about Emglish language.
    In every single episod eslpod have some  new lessons for me. It is like every listen jolts u like” Hey, don’t flatter yourself.you still have a lot to learn.”
    And , it is so true
    Every lesson is an eye opener for me that I still have a long way to go

    Thanks Eslpod for showing the error of my ways 

    By for now

    Pete
