  1. Terry says:

    Hi Martin and Dan the Man! 🙂
    TYPO ALERT! Two before the last, ‘brothel’ instead mates 🙂 🙂

  2. Sandro says:

    Hi Mart, very good job with Dan.
    Question for you:
    I don’t hear what you have just said.
    What can I say:
    1″ What did you say ? ” or
    2″What have you said ?”

    • Martman99 says:

      Hi Sandro! 🙂 We say “what did you say” as the action of speaking is finished, so we use the past simple – I hope this helps! 🙂

  3. Mabel H. says:

    Hi Martin,

    Like you said in the podcast, it’s important to go back to this website to read the article after listening to the podcast.
    I asked my teacher (from London as well) “why Londoners can’t die in their apartments?”, and she was very surprised and asked me who told me that.
    And I tried to find out the link to this episode to her, now I know …

    • Martman99 says:

      Hi Mabel! 🙂 Thanks for the message 🙂 I can’t even remember what we said in this episode, but I’m sure it was something stupid like usual! 😉 I get all the information from websites, but I’m not sure if it’s always true… it’s just something funny to talk about! I hope you enjoy the show! 🙂
