    think havin versions in language other than english is good…better reach for the older, non-english educated group.

    Mr B, i propose that u do multi languages for podcasts that have more sociaty awareness messages…

    A big round of applause for Mr Brown. The Chinese version 有水准, ok! It is obvious that from the comments you get, you will become quite popular with the Chinese only listeners as well. Why not do more podcasts in Chinese?

    Dear Brown & team,

    This is definitely a showcase of “one up manship” from your “bak chor mee” and it goes to show you are indeed more creative and connected than our “topman’s” effort during last NDR speech!

    […] the mrbrown show: more fishballs My wife laughed and told me I sounded hesitant in my Chinese radio debut. I told her, hard lah. I have to translate the cheem and fast Chinese chatter of the DJs first in my mind, then think of the answers in English, then translate from my English brain into my limited Chinese. […]
