This episode’s audio doesn’t exist, and we have technology to blame (poof! gone into cyberspace!). Instead of listening to this episode, feel free to use the notes below to learn more about the topic. And if you’re like, “CHER, NO. I NEED THIS EPISODE,” then let me know in the comments below. I’ll put it on my list to record again!
In the span of fourteen short minutes, you’ll walk away after listening to this podcast knowing:
— Four must know Italian phrases (one of which will do you wonders in keeping Italian men away from you)
— Two must know verbs, fare and essere
— One trick that will improve your memory in Italian two-fold
Not so bad for fourteen minutes, yeah?
Plus you’ll hear a story about how I almost accepted a date from a self-proclaimed Casanova in Venice during a time period in Venice where the whole city is in danger of floods.
