I have been missing from the last two episodes of The Polyglot Project Podcast due to other commitments, but David (http://www.davidmansaray.com/) has done a great job in my absence. I hope to be back for the next interview. In the meantime, enjoy this latest episode:

Dear Friends,

You may have noticed my absence from this blog, the Polyglot Project interviews, and YouTube. This has not been due to a lack of interest, but to illness and injury. The injury was mine and although painful, not serious (see my YouTube video description here). The illness, on the other hand, affected a very close relative and is very serious indeed–pancreatic cancer.

Now, as you can imagine, the news of this illness completely blindsided me, and I was quite incapable of focusing my mind for quite some time afterward. My young cousin–the relative who received such a terrible diagnosis–and I are extremely close, and I refused to believe that he had been dealt such a cruel hand. But after watching him endure weeks of chemotherapy and radiation, reality has finally set in.

My cousin is a fighter, and embraces every day without self-pity and with great courage. What excuse did I have then, to be immobilized in a mental fetal position I had created for myself?

So, I’m back. I hope to have more regular posts to this blog, more videos on YouTube and resurrect the Polyglot Project Podcast.

Life goes on–my cousin taught me that.

Earlier this month, David Mansaray and I had the pleasure of interviewing Moses McCormick on The Polyglot Project Podcast (if you missed it, click HERE). Moses was the first of many interesting guests that we have lined up. Our premier episode with Moses has been a huge success, and we had over 800 downloads of this first episode by the end of the day!

I am pleased to announce that one of our listeners, Jamie Cameron, was gracious enough to have transcribed the entire interview–over 8000 words! This is a great resource for non-native speakers of English who may wish to listen to the interview with the transcript in front of them.

Click HERE to download the transcript.

We hope to have transcripts for all subsequent podcasts. Eventually, the podcasts and their transcripts will be posted on iTunes as well. In the meantime, be sure to subscribe to this blog–it would be a pity for you to miss out on hearing a single one of these interviews!

 The Polyglot Project Podcast

A few weeks ago I made a video on my YouTube channel asking my viewers if they would be interested in hearing podcast interviews of polyglots, linguists and language lovers. The response was a resounding yes!

On that note, I’m happy to announce that the podcasts will be made, but the idea has evolved somewhat from when I proposed it  on that video. The interviews will now be co-hosted, and I am pleased to announce that my friend David Mansaray has agreed to work with me on this endeavor.  David brings his enthusiasm and knowledge to the table,  and I look forward to working with him.

Click HERE to listen to my interview with David.

Our goal is to make this podcast informative, motivational and enjoyable for the listener. This series will bring great language lovers together and give them a venue where they can talk about their experiences.

The podcast will be available right here on this blog and will also be simultaneously cross-posted on David’s blog.  In keeping with the spirit of The Polyglot Project, we encourage you to download the podcasts and host them on your own blogs as well, so that this great resource can reach as many people as possible.

Be sure to subscribe to this blog and to David’s blog. Don’t miss any of the updates!
