Sounds like gibberish as they talk to fast.

So happy I found this!

This podcast is great. The hosts are extremely knowledgeable and give real world examples of how these important forms are used for many different scenarios.
Being able to enhance our knowledge while driving to and from appointments is such a gift.
Side note:
May I suggest doing another episode on the COP the SPRP forms? They are so incredibly important and the COP has been updated since the episode aired. It would make following along a bit easier so that references to paragraphs are aligned with updated version.
Thank you so much for your time spent doing this!
