      This was a wonderful episode! (As they all have been so far.) I really liked the lovely story of Caga-tiò told by Alba – I never heard of him before! And it’s so fun to actually understand the conversation, only on the basis of having followed CBS and Show Time Spanish from the beginning. You are doing a great job, with just the right pace.

      Omg, this was the most amusing CBS/STS podcast I’ve listened to so far! It inspired me to google the history of “caga tio” and I laughed my head off. Thanks for a great podcast and a most interesting culture lesson.
