    She is dead because the haters who are on the dark side and won the Brexit referendum. But her voice is still here and I hope other voices will rise to fight against the haters which never stop hating and shouting. Maybe it is time to stop them.

    Hi people we have started two episodes the 425 and we have taken an abandoned one about World Cup Football the 188.

    425: docs.google.com/document/d/1IOuX2A7xdtLZcroosM51f3SqiybGyNwL-wFFDKPOqZY/edit

    188: docs.google.com/document/d/1hNGhuUIkc8ZMFUdnVDfm_NR1fBSL1JCTPbSlCGOI8qU/edit

    The 188 is easy because people speak alone so the intermediate student and Brazilians can transcribe some chunks. Because it was in Brazil!

    Thank you

    Hi Luke,

    Why don’t you talk a little bit about Snooker? There is so much British culture in that game which I would like to learn.

    Thank you

    • Agnes

      Hi Cat,

      Thank you for this wonderful video:-)

      • Catherine

        You’re welcome, Agnes!

        I know you enjoy TED talks as much as I do. ;-)

        There is also a wonderful OPP called “TED Radio Hour” by NPR: www.npr.org/programs/ted-radio-hour/?showDate=2017-02-17 It’s just wonderful! :)

      • Absolutely cracking video. She’s amazing.

      • Catherine

        I hoped you would like it. She is a bit similar to you, also loves doing impressions and imrovisations. :)

      • Agnes

        thanks Cat, yes I’ve started to listen to Ted Radio Hour lately, especially the last episode, which is relating to this video with amazing Sara Jones after recommendation during our last chat:-) There are American voices but it is good to mix them up, British and American:-)

        I reckon that there is so much, I mean on the internet, to watch and our life is too short to see everything! ha ha

      • Catherine

        Exactly! For this very reason, I try to listen only to those which suit my ambitions and taste the best. ;)
