AFP 21 – Richard Simcott: 20th Episode Special!

Today is a special celebratory milestone! It marks the 20th unique episode of the Actual Fluency Podcast. When I first started the podcast 20 episodes ago, it was my dream to create a podcast that could inspire people, and myself to work harder, discover new methods and just try and connect the community through the podcasting medium – which at the time I started only had one other general language learning podcast.

richardsimcottTo help me celebrate the great news I've brought on Richard Simcott, who was one of the very first polyglots I encountered on YouTube. Way before I even considered learning a language, let alone starting a blog.
So now it has come full circle. Through joining the polyglot community, starting a blog and devising a future I'm moving on with my life, instead of staying in the hole of depression, wandering around aimlessly and without any hope of a better life.

Thank you

This show would not have been possible without you, so I just wanted to take a second to thank you so much for being a listener. It literally makes my day when I get emails, messages or tweets where people tell me they listened to something I had done and it had a positive effect on their life.

To me there is no greater pleasure.

Here's to the next 20!

    Thanks for another great episode Chris. I have listened to them all so far and have one more new one to catch up. My iTunes feed was not updating, so I came directly here.

    • Chris Broholm

      Thanks Bob, appreciate your awesome feedback. People like you are the reason I keep going every friday 🙂

      Was your iTunes feed problem resolved or is there still a problem? Maybe I can look into it.

      • Bob

        I am still having problems with iTunes.

        • Chris Broholm

          Hm, that is annoying! I have just checked my own iTunes and everything shows up fine. I’m sorry about that!

            I got it working. Ready for next episode.
