    The podcast about things you miss about USA is long and with long sentences. There are many unknown words. The pronunciation is a little bit difficult to unsderstand because you are native speakers. I only lost myself in the part that you talk about the charger that Josh brought because there are words that aren’t on the transcript. Do me a favor: check it fort me.
    In the podcast about Australia the pronunciation is clearest, there are less unknown words.
    In the podcast about England Charlie’s pronunciation is difficult to understand because he speaks fast and speaks British English. He said that he sometimes has black pudding which is congealed pigs blood, obviously toast in breakfast and he wash it with milk. Does he eat ( in Portuguese: sangue de porco congelado, tostado e depois lavado com leite?) isn’t it?
    Thank you for everything and a hug
