    [0:35] INTRO


    Isi:
    [0:54] Mitch what's our do we only do a mega topic of the week because i love it and we have no time for anything else yeah.


    Mitch:
    [1:01] I don't know how we.


    Isi:
    [1:02] I know why why we watched something where a cockroach appeared and we discussed why the cockroaches actually have such a bad reputation because they don't do anything really they don't bite you they don't sting you they don't do anything bad to you just living in they just prefer dirty places I think that's why people just eat bin-juice don't they? I don't even know what they eat, but (Bin-juice.) What do you think?


    Mitch:
    [1:30] Yeah, we came up with an idea to do an episode about good and bad animal PR. Okay, should we get started?


    Isi:
    [1:42] Yeah.


    Mitch:
    [1:43] Wait, first of all, we haven't said it, but welcome to the Easy English Podcast. (10 minutes later.) I um have written down some of my own feelings towards animals in the animal kingdom that have bad and good PR. Now just in case you don't know PR do you know what PR stands for? (Public relations.) So in the theory we're sort of making out like each of these animals has a media team which they kind of do for me it's mainly Disney movies that's gonna be the reason why I've given them good or bad PR. So I'm just gonna read out some to you do you want to start with bad PR or good PR? Bad PR would be animals which we perceive to be bad from media, whatever but actually really good


    Isi:
    [2:31] All animals are good there's no animal that has bad PR that is not good.


    Mitch:
    [2:35] I have I have a good one that I would like for you to tell me that has bad PR and is a bad animal.


    Isi:
    [2:41] There is no bad animals.


    Mitch:
    [2:42] Are you sure?

    Intro


    Mitch:
    [0:22] Okay, welcome to episode 41 of the Easy English Podcast.


    Isi:
    [0:28] Do you have a sweet in your mouth during a podcast? That's not cool.


    Mitch:
    [0:33] No.


    Isi:
    [0:35] People will hate this. Okay, he puts it out. Don't worry. Now it's on your laptop.


    Mitch:
    [0:42] Save it for later. We're back in Britain.


    Isi:
    [0:46] We're back in Britain.


    Mitch:
    [0:47] How are you all? yet again more grinding of building materials .


    Isi:
    [0:53] Yeah, do you remember when we told you our building work is coming to an end our building work started again.


    Mitch:
    [0:58] They've started again from day one they do it all over again.


    Isi:
    [1:03] Wait, we already said they started again didn't we and now they started again again.


    Mitch:
    [1:06] Again again they're working backwards. They're gonna take it back to how it was and then do it all over again but a bit better.


    Isi:
    [1:12] There's drilling in the background now yay.


    Mitch:
    [1:14] Um today we have three topics for you. Let's do topic number one.


    Isi:
    [1:21] Topic number one.


    Mitch:
    [1:22] Easy English Updates.


    Unknown:
    [1:28] Easy English Updates.


    Mitch:
    [1:30] When was it? Last week? Yeah, last week.


    Isi:
    [1:34] Yeah, it was, it's only a week ago. Well, a week and two days. (We had) our first ever Easy English meetup together with Easy German so we did an Easy German and Easy English meetup to meet viewers listeners maybe some some people of you that are listening now. (Oh yeah, can you write if you were there.) Yeah write us a message. (It was in Münster so it was more German-based,obviously.) In my home-town and we met for like three hours i think it's in the end it was much longer than three hours.


    Mitch:
    [2:12] cool venue right called Gasolin. An old gas station or petrol station sorry.


    Isi:
    [2:17] A bar that I've known for many many years in my life and we met there it was much fun um... (I was nervous.) yeah?


    Mitch:
    [2:28] Yeah, I didn't want to tell you because I don't want to give empathy nerves. I had to drink maybe two beers to feel a bit more like I drank Radler which is like a shandy in English. (Yeah.) Which is a mixture of lemonade and beer and the sugar just made me feel more nervous.


    Isi:
    [2:46] Oh yeah it's a bit nerve-wracking isn't it because we are just always behind our microphones behind the camera or in front of the camera but on our own doing our stuff.


    Mitch:
    [2:57] Yeah, we're kind of faceless in a way.


    Isi:
    [2:59] Yeah, and it's really nice to get direct feedback. But we are lacking this really in like our...job. I know you you give sometimes comments on YouTube or here on the podcast or as a member on Patreon. But it would be great to actually have more of a feedback even so actually now I can directly tell you it would be great if you on your podcast app where you're listening um give us a feedback um on most apps you can give rating or even a comment with it um like on Spotify for example you can give a rating and you can also ask questions or give us comments on specific episodes and we would be really really happy to get that because you know when you're doing something and you don't really know what people think of it so it does help us a lot if you give us a feedback so if you could now now now quickly quickly it takes a second go on I mean you are on the app now but see on the app that you can um wha
