In each 15-minute episode, we discuss practical, thought-provoking or controversial topics with our friends, and some of the biggest names in language teaching.

Troy's argument in this episode is that when you are offered a job, you need to ask a lot of very penetrating questions, and just sort of generally act the inquisitor during the interview.

This podcast is not a sequel. We all hate sequels because they are never as good as the original. Except Star Wars. And Star Trek. And To Sir With Love.
