Intro

Mitch:
[0:34] (Hello!) Hiya, welcome to the new episode of the Easy English Podcast. That is so formal.

Isi:
[0:39] I don't like to look at you while we record it. I have to laugh.

Mitch:
[0:44] We're so far away again.

Isi:
[0:46] Hello, down there, in the hallway.

Mitch:
[0:49] Yeah, it feels like we're in a hallway.

Isi:
[0:51] I will just directly say it. Mitch, We had The Big Veg Show (The Veg Cast. ) The Veg Cast. I hope people enjoyed it because I said it already, what comes this week. And it's The Big, Big Fruit Show.

Mitch:
[1:05] The Fruit Show, The Veg Cast and The Fruit Show.

Isi:
[1:07] Yeah, we couldn't do it both last time, so we need to talk about fruits.

Mitch:
[1:11] It wouldn't have been fair, though, to have thrown fruits on the ends of veg, because fruits don't... shouldn't be disrespected like that.

Isi:
[1:17] But fruits have a better life. Most of them are very sugary, so people usually like them more than veg. I would say.

Mitch:
[1:25] But we're savoury people. No, that sounds like... (We are savoury people.) That's actually a compliment. Because you can be a very unsavoury.

Isi:
[1:33] Will you make us a drink? Because I wanna ask our listeners for something, in between.

Mitch:
[1:37] Okay, feels like you're booting me out of the room, to say something private.

Isi:
[1:41] No, I just want a drink.

Mitch:
[1:42] If you'd like to listen to this podcast, without Mitch, give us a thumbs up.

Isi:
[1:46] What I wanted to ask, today is a little bit of a favour. You might know that, in podcast apps, where you listen to us. Um, there are several of podcast apps. It does help, if you give us a review of our podcast, on some apps you can leave a comment about our podcast. And this interaction, if you give like, a response to our podcast, will help others to find our podcast. So, if you could just today, if you like our podcast, take a second out of your day and see in your app where you can leave us
a review, a comment, a rating That will be fantastic. It's weird to ask for things, but I think it would be really, really, really nice if you could help us with this. Anyway, and also, if you have questions for our podcast or for us, write us an email to [email protected] or on easyenglish.fm. You can also leave us an audio message. We have a section called 'Unhelpful Advice' and we are still waiting for your problems and issues to solve. Okay, now Mitch is back and we can go on with fruits. (Is margarita a fruit?)
Topic of the Week

Isi:
[3:09] I have a few questions first, and then I would guide you through the world of fruits. Um, what is... (Come with me.) What is your favourite fruit?

Mitch:
[3:14] Off the top of my head, I'm thinking strawberries, but it probably isn't. But strawberries are just like, a solid fruit.

Isi:
[3:21] So I wanted to say peach, I really like a really good peach, but peach can be really shit as well.

Mitch:
[3:32] I know what yours is and it's my like, curveball, because when you... when you think of fruits, you think of sweetness. But I think, actually, if we were to really go into it, what fruit we eat the most, especially you, It would be a sour fruit.

Isi:
[3:48] Lemon. Yeah, lemon is probably my favourite fruit because I eat it most.

Mitch:
[3:53] It's my favourite pudding. Anything with lemon?

Isi:
[3:54] I love citrus fruits. Anyway, I love lime, love oranges... favourite pudding.

Mitch:
[3:59] Yeah. Anything with a lemon on it. (Lemon cake.) Lemon drizzle, for shizzle, ma nizzle, Lemon cheesecake.

Isi:
[4:05] Lemon posset. (Lemon posset.) Posset. Posset. Such a thing I've learned in England. Um, with watching 'Come Dine With Me'. Everybody does a lemon posset. It sounds so posh.
I don't even know really what it is. It's a lemon cream or something. A lemon posset And they're always like; "for dessert, I have a lemon posset". And then you hear the other people talking in the off later in th...
