Thailand was warm, hospitable and overrun with brazen hussies. It was the perfect destination for her deadbeat lout of a spouse, thought Mary Lincoln, as the two of them rolled slowly towards Wat Mahathat wrapped in the sort of stifling heat that can only be experienced in a low-end tourist bus on a hot summer day. Sitting by her right shoulder, her husband was eagerly snapping photographs of the passing scenery.

Over the last four days the prospect of a divorce had assumed a looming certainty in her mind. For it had been a terrible vacation. First there was the airport attendant, then the cleaning staff at the hotel. Then the tour guide, the lawyer they had met over brunch, and finally the woman who ran the juice-press outside their hotel. All told, Mark was like a man out of control. Things were severalfold worse than they had been on their last disastrous trip to Canada, Mary decided. She had had enough.

I like the story-like introductions you guys write for these podcasts. This one is good. And I'll side with Mary, she should dump Mark for taking her on a non air-conditioned bus in Southeast Asia. I would die.

just me or is the entire podcast coming out of one speaker?

Recording should be mono, but should be coming out of both speakers - so if it's stereo and only one speaker that's an issue, and likely ours. Thanks Mike.

我喜欢这个新样的播客有第一时候的,第二时候的dialogue,但是我还要听一个last time后面谈完了。

I like the new format where you play the dialogue in the middle but one last time at the end would still be great. =)

i had a similar experience to hotpotmike: sound is coming out of both speakers but only some slight background music is coming out of one of the channels. nothing major, but a bit weird. it's not happening in future lessons so i guess it's not important.
