Podcasts and Audio Archive of Jon Dao
Long overdue, I present to you a brand-new speaking and communication focused podcast: CommDao Speak Easy.
In each episode, there’ll be a sample conversation in the opening dialogue, enacted by yours truly. Maybe an occasional guest appearance here and there. Then, a dissection of the key phrases used in the dialogue. After that the Faux Pas of the day, and your advanced communication tip.
Here are the show notes:
Bobby: Yo, Frank! Get a load of this guy. What’s he wearing there?Frank: Oh, Bobby, observant as ever, aren’t we? I do believe those garments are known as “jorts”.Bobby: You sure they ain’t capris? I got a lady friend who likes to rock a brown pair, but I think they look even better on the ground– if you know what I mean.Frank: Bobby, have you no shame?
to bring to attention, to get someone to check something out
Example: Get a load of all these people here! = Check out (Look) at all the people here!
to wear (confidently)
Example: Nobody can rock jorts. = Nobody can wear jorts (confidently and/or look good in them).
a phrase you can tack on to the end of any sentence to imply sexual innuendo
Example: I’m pretty good with my hands– if you know what I mean. = I am quite adept at using my hands in a sexual manner.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
Example: You didn’t wear pants to work. Have you no shame? = You should be ashamed of yourself for not wearing pants to work.
Do not use “lady friend” to refer to your girlfriend, fiancee, or spouse.
