    Hello guys, thank you so much for the great job, I’d like to suggest for you to create a system that make able to us to listen the episodes like a “Playlist” here in the website, I can do that by my phone, but sometimes I am at home and I rather listen to the episodes trought the laptop, so that’s my suggestion, I wish you guys all the success of the world, thanks for helping me to learn English “The Real Stuff” haha!

    • @robbysilvestre:disqus Thanks for your suggestion. Maybe we will build an app sometime soon. Please continue to send in your suggestions about how we can improve AEE. We always want to hear feedback!

    To solve the gun problems, we need to take guns out of society, make it harder to obtain them. We cannot solve violence with violence.

    Congratulations girls, it´s the first time I find a hard subject in AEE.
    If we need a gun to be sure, that means we are unsure, and unsecurity is a powerful poison of the soul. But everybody has the greatest power of all, the power of taking choices. Wayne Dyer says: Everything in this life is decisions.
    There´s a movie called “Bowling for Columbine”, that gives us a possible explanation of why all this happens.
    Human being is able to make the most beautiful thing or the more awful one.
    It´s up to each one of us.

    I usually come across this expression: “Thanks for having me on”. Is this ON optional?

    • Yes it’s optional but “on” means “on the show”

        Great! Thanks for the promt reply!
