    it was a miracle that I hadn't been injured when I had car accident 15 years ago.
    Chat GPT shows extreme promise in the near future because it could assist a lot of fields.

  10. Pretty disappointing. I came here thinking this was a grown up show with actual information on this blood test for cancer. Turns out it’s just click bait and a vocabulary show for kids or slow adults.

  11. I am very keen on your podcasts. I usually listen to them before sleep. It is very helpful for me to keep up with my English.
