Like it to change perspective
Like your podcast. The news are divers, mainstream and out of the ordinary. For me it’s sometimes hard to follow cause English isn‘t my first language. The background noises and changing speakers with different accents makes it hard to follow the news. It would be so nice if you could offer a script to your podcast. Reading and listening would make it easier for my to stay tuned. Do you offer scripts?
