    I understand the ads / sponsorship. I do. You all put in a lot of work, and I’m sure there are costs incurred. So I’m not exactly complaining. But I can’t help but wonder that you’ve all somehow been co-opted by Big Fresh.

    Great podcast, as always. But did Producer Pat really pronounce Ljubljana “ul-joob-la-john-a”? The combination lj in Slovene – or any Slavic or non-English Germanic language for that matter – is a so-called “soft” L, like the lli part of “million.” Lyoob-lya-na, please, and those are Ys as in “yes,” not Ys as in “why.” I never miss your podcast. Keep it up!

      Thanks for the correction Dean but did you just really blame me for the way Adam pronounced Ljubljana? ;)! Thanks for listening!

      • Dean Meservy says:

        A thousand apologies, Producer Pat! Of course I meant Adam. I knew oerfectly well that your Slovene was impeccable. Thanks again – great program.
