Wow, hands-down my favorite part was the music. Not only do I love Fancy, but I love that you guys hooked the readers from the beginning with music and with humor. It's great. You guys did a really good job of quickly giving history of the history of the conflict. This wasn't really a crisis that I've recently been following, so you definitely caught me up on a really important global issue. A follow-up question that I have is.. what was your initial opinion about the peace plan? Did you think it would hold up? If not, under which circumstances would it fail? Did you predict what's now happening? Great job guys, can't wait to follow up on this with you in class.
I loved the beginning...that was truly priceless! The information you provided, however, was much more beneficial to me as a reader (or listener in this case!). I loved that you brought Franklin in as an expert--it brought a nice level of dynamic to the podcast! The only question I'd have is more of a request for expansion on the topic of Russia burning down bridges in the Ukraine, and President Obama approving of this action. Although I understand that the US is siding with Russia on this issue, I would be interested in hearing a clip of Obama's statement regarding this, or even a quotation taken from one of his speeches that corroborates this idea. I think it would be helpful for listeners to have this evidence, for it is difficult for us to hear that our president approves of another country blowing up the bridges in the Ukraine and killing innocent people. Other than that, I really enjoyed this podcast. Great job!
Guys this is great! I can't believe you figured out how to add music thats too perfect! you guys sound like you should be radio hosts. It is clear that this crisis is continuing to intensify, as conflict and violence are spread. Do you think that trying not to become too involved in order to avoid war is the right solution, or do you believe that we should take our chances before matters begin to get even worse?
I really enjoyed the music that was on this podcast! i think that the information that you guys gave is very good! I like the question that Hannah Mason asked and would like to know the answer as well. Good job guys!
This was so good! The time you spent on the music was definitely worth it haha! The background of the conflict was really good and clear and you made the story easy to follow and understand. I haven't really been looking into this so it was good to hear updates.
Wow! This was a really good podcast. I learned more from this than I have from some of the news articles publish on the subject. The background information was also helpful to understand the whole conversation. The music was amazing as well.
This podcast is AMAZING. Your introduction immediately hooks in listeners and the humor is great. I haven't been keeping up on the Ukraine crisis, but you did a great job of providing a plethora of concise information from many perspectives. I give you an A++.
Nice job guys. I love how you brought in an expert. Franklin you sounded very professionally and provided so much good information. Love the music. Fancy was definitely a great way to draw in your listener. You really talked about all the different aspects of this such as the G8, and the Peace Plan. You were very objective and showed both sided of the issues and expressed so much knowledge.
Really great intro and outro, sounded professional and totally put together. You all sounded like you know what you're talking about and did the research. Great job!
