Informative and thoughtful

I love the TEFLOLOGY podcast because of the thoughtful takes on various topics and interviews. I've learned about ELTs and researchers that I didn't know I'd be interested in through TEFLOLOGY. Thank you for keeping this up! Now that this podcast has been around for a couple years, the cumulative effect of all of these podcasts is also impressive (and useful) for those of us looking for continuing professional development.

Audio is Usually Incomprehensible

Another interview recorded in an echo-filled hotel ballroom at a TEFL conference? No thanks! I'm tired of playing the same passages multiple times to be able to understand what somebody said amidst the noise. A shame, really, because some of the content is quite interesting.
