Just what I needed to listen to

Great tips and advice!

Great insight’s

I enjoy most topics. Found this late so I am still catching up. Just do not understand having to listen to almost an entire episode in Afrikaans on an important subject then end up losing context. Yes accommodate everyone, a phrase or two with translation are fine, but an entire paragraph is not cool. Nonetheless I love the concept and the topics.
