    I liked how people switched off on how people talked. I liked how people let people say different things. I liked the music. I liked how people said there names so people new who there were. I liked how people described everything.

    We could make the podcast more fluent. We could make more music in the podcast. We could not laugh. We could be more serious.

    Cool music

    So far professional

    Good information

    I liked The Hammarabi group

    Music is a little to short. Maybe it should be more like Background music

    Bad: Some people need to slow down

    Mesopotamia for Dummies-

    -The music in the beginning was a little loud to where I couldn’t here their voices. - Interesting way to tell information - Told me a lot of info that I didn’t know before -In some of it there was a long pause

    Geography’s group was interesting and kept me listening. Colton made me laugh.

    Ancient Sumer spoke clearly and fluently. Cooper spoke very clearly and spoke enthusiastically.

    Ancient Babylon made me wants to listen longer and hear more. Angel spoke clearly and fluently.

    Judaism’s group was very informational. Jadon spoke very well. Tanner was HILARIOUS!!!

  • Morgan

    I liked at the beginning how they switched off voices. It was funny when Payton said what’s up. It was hilarious when Cooper’s group said bye and they sounded like sheep.

  • chandler

    I really enjoyed listening to the different groups talk on their top

  • Justin

    That intro is so cool. That is funny. I like the way you introduced yourself’s. I like the way you passed the microphone. Wasup I liked that. Next time you need to improve the way you say cuniaform. Thats some cool music you have. Make the music a little quieter, or speak a little louder. Your intro is cool. I like yours much more than ours. Your podcast is also much shorter and at the end before the ending Tanner could have spoke a little quieter.

    Introduction was good but needed a little bit more information. Good choice of music. Geography was very funny! It grabbed the reader’s attention a lot. The conclusion was well.

    Sounds a bit rushed in intro. Geography is good. Sumer isn’t half bad. Babylon isn’t too shabby. Judaism is pretty good except the end. Conclusion is great.
