    You guys have good music to.

    I agree that Hammarabi had unfair laws.

    The introduction was neat.

    Ferrell’s and Swofford’s Class had pretty much the same music

    Tyler is way to quiet.

    I liked that Tyler answered the question Krista asked. I liked how they named the Tigris and Euphrates. They described thing good

    They need to work on not saying the same things twice. They need to speak up! They need to be more enthusiastic. They need to say the whole sentence before they take a breath. They need to not talk so fast. They need to be more fluent. They need to learn there lines better. They need to add more music. They need to not talk so close to the microphone.

    Good introduction. I like the music. Tyler needs to talk louder. Angie needs to talk louder. Cuneiform is good. Judaism is very good. The hosts are very entertaining.

    The beginning was good. The Geography was good but they got a little quiet. The Sumer people were good too. The babalon group was good too they got a little loud though. Judaism was great they really enunciated. The ending was good but one person was a little quiet.

  • Anthony

  • Jacob

    That was a great introduction you guys!

    It was fantastic information you guys!

    You guys had a very informational section! Maybe not get so close to the mic next time. Other than that you guys did great.

    Informational and interesting you guys!

    Loved the conclusion! Keep it up!

    I think that they did a really good job. I did not really like the pod about irrigation.

    I liked their conclusion.

    Swofford I liked the beginning of the Podcast. I like how they gave lots of information. They need to speak up. They need to slow down. They need to know their lines better. The end was good.

    Good job Mrs. Swofford’s class.

    Nov 6, 2008 at 2:50 pm
  • Angie

    Positives + I liked how everyone tried their best to make their parts interesting. Most of the times people had medium voices. 

    Suggestions – Some people need to speak up and slow down, also try not to move the microphone so much. In some parts the music was too loud. 

  • chandler

    I love the music. There is a lot of great information. They spoke clearly. I really enjoyed listening to the different groups talk on their top

    Nov 6, 2008 at 3:12 pm
  • Justin

    I think that the music is really cool. They spoke clearly and it was easy to understand. Next time they should speak a little quieter. Next time they might be able to make the speaking parts more fun. I like the way the music fades in and out. I didn’t know that no one was aloud at the top of a ziggurat. Wow Mesopotamia is really old. Next time they should speak a little slower. New Babylon is famous for the hanging gardens. Next time Krista needs to say Judaism correct.

  • Taylor

    I like the intro for a lil’ taste of Mesopotamia. Everyone could talk clearer and slow down. I also like the music between each part. Everyone gave very very good info. Very very loud!!! Very good at pronouncing all the difficult words.

    After all great job Mrs.Swoffords class

    Nov 6, 2008 at 3:13 pm
  • Krista

    Funny introduction! I think that there should be background music even when the people are speaking though.I liked the section about Babylon. It was very informative. I really liked the ending.

    Nov 6, 2008 at 3:14 pm
  • Emma

    That was a really good intro. It grabbed m in the pod cast. I think you need to talk a little bit louder though Tyler! Great intro either way! The thing about ancient summer was really good. I loved the part about Babylon. There is one thing that Babylon people need to do; that is slow down! The ending was awesome as well. You guys are great!

  • isaac

    its good at the beginning and the music is good also. The middle is also good but it is confusing a little. The end is pretty ok, during the whole thing some people were to soft and some people were to loud.

  • dylan

    The music was great! Easy to understand Very detailed Funny A lot of info All segments were great Easy to learn off of

    Comments: by Olivia!

    I liked the music!

    I liked our introduction!

    I also liked our conclusion!

    I couldn’t really hear Tyler that much!

    Nov 6, 2008 at 3:15 pm
  • Taylor

    Need to change

    Speak up with some people Slow down Not to talk to loud! Not to move the mic. You can hear when you move it Music a little louder


    Nice music Nice kind of calm Like how it fades when people talk Some people talked in a medium voice  Very good info  Not that much stuttering

  • Alex

    The introduction was really good. But a lot of people need to talk a little louder. The geography group the summer group did well well every group did really good to be honest. I liked the intro because Tyler acted like he was playing with the truck and how Krista asked Tyler if he was hungry. The conclusion was great but Tyler I think you need to talk just a little bit louder into the microphone.

    Good stuff Good and accurate information. You were very good explaining at each topic. Only important facts were said. No going off on other topics. Good job at incorporating stories into your parts. Overall it was really good the only thing I would recommend would be for you to not rattle the microphone.

    Nov 6, 2008 at 3:18 pm
  • Blake

    People need to avoid breathing into the MIC. Other than that it was awesome!

    Nov 6, 2008 at 3:18 pm
  • erika

    It was a good job for everyone.

    Nov 6, 2008 at 3:22 pm
  • Alex

    Everything was out standing the intro and the ending was great. GOOD JOB GUYS. The music was amazing and almost the same as ours just one or two songs were different.

  • Sarah

    Sarah It was good I liked that you talked very clearly. Your show host did very well on getting you to want to listen to the pod cast. The only thing that you needed to change was the shouting at the end.
