I'm really happy to have connected with Richard in New York where I also had the opportunity to watch his talk on community language learning. It's a topic that isn't widely discussed but I truly believe in the value of the message.

Richard is an incredibly interesting and knowledgeable person who I could listen to for hours. In fact, the conversation was so interesting I had to split the interview into two parts. You're getting the first part here and the second part next week.

Thanks!
