Hi Mucio!

Thanks for the comment and for supporting the show with your D2B membership!! We are working on a new episode right this minute and it will be released soon! Let us know if there were any topics you’d like to hear us cover and I will see what we can do.

Hi Franklin,
Yes, free is a very good price. But keep in mind that the podcast is always free AND the audio script for the most recent episode is still FREE too!!
The D2B Membership plans are for listeners who:

  • like the show and would like to support the time and effort we put into producing it.
  • would like access to ALL the audio scripts without having to fill out annoying online forms.
  • would like the benefit of receiving audio scripts to new episodes delivered to their inbox as soon as a new episode is released.

After 4 years of listening, you don’t fall into any of those categories?

I’ve been listening to D2B for over 4 year, and find it is no longer free for the new episodes. A pity.
Isn’t free is the best price ?? LOL.
Well, hope the new episodes will be well worthy the money.


Hi Gabriel.
Thanks for the kind words! It is always nice to hear from D2B listeners. As for extending the D2V part…we will try 🙂 Good luck with achieving C1, I hope our stories help in that endeavor.

Hi Skip Dez and Samantha !
This is Gabriel from Paris – France. I’ve been listening to your podcast in my car when going to/from work for some weeks and I really enjoyed it. I discovered your work while I was looking for audio podcast to improve my english skills as I have to get to level C1 to complete my engineer diploma. D2B is honnestly the best podcast I tried. The topics are always very interesting, present-day and well documented. The D2V part is a great idea. Maybe you could make it longer ?
Thank you so much for your work !

Thanks to all of you for your kind words!

Kenichi- I hope you enjoyed our episode on Prime Minister Hatoyama.

Heike- I’ve done my best to mix the music so it doesn’t disturb as much. I hope you have noticed a change, but if not please let me know. (I really don’t want to take the music out completely)

Pierre-Oliver- Thanks for the comment. Yes, we will continue! I’m sorry about the irregularity of the release dates but we are doing our best to get episodes out more often.

Tiong- Thanks again!! (please be sure to see my reply on the Hedge fund post)

If any of you have business topics or business stories you would like Dez & I to cover, please let us know. You can post something here or email us (Use the Contact form).



I think is an excellent website for those who want to improve their English especially listening skill. I find its presentation approach is quite unique, intriguing and yet giving me a particular feeling of relaxing. I love all the podcasts very much. I must say thank you to Skip and Dez for your great job. Thank you.

Hi, thanks for your great job. I listen to an episode every morning in the train, and I spend a very good time while learning.
I hope you’ll continue.

Hello Des and Skip,

How are you?

I am Kenichi Yoshida and live in Japan. I am studying in English very hard in order to join a business school. I think that your site is really useful to improve my listening skills in English. Anyway, I have a request for you. Please make and appear a script about Mr. Hatoyama, current Japanese prime minister. He at times changes his political policy, such as subsidy for young children, free highway and US millitary bases in Okinawa. A Majority of Japanese citizens is too disappointed about his behavior. Actually, I am quite familier with this issue, however I would like to listen and read this issue through D2B. This is because, I hope to listen and read this issue from your angle.

Thanks and kind regards.

Kenichi Yoshida
