Comment on the website from Rafael:
Hello Reza and Craig, very interesting this episode speaking about drugs - Episode 118  http://www.inglespodcast.com/2016/08/28/drugs-and-addiction-airc118/  
Me ha gustado mucho todo lo que comentáis. Lo ha hecho como siempre, muy bien.

Hablais de las adicciones en las que se toman algunas sustancias químicas,
pero habéis pasado por alto una adicción muy potente que es la "ludopatía" o la afición por el juego, (ya sea cartas, lotería o las máquinas tragaperras - slot machines, fruit machines, one-armed bandit)

Muchas personas se enganchan sin tomar ninguna droga, Es curioso como la química del cerebro crea sus propias sustancias para que la gente quede muy enganchada
de personas que lo han perdido todo, sin tomar absolutamente ninguna sustancia química.

También he recordado una canción de John Lennon, que se llamaba "Cold Turkey" ahora ya sé lo que significaba, "el mono".
Saludos, Rafael.

Voice message from Elisa from Finland - She hates dependent prepositions! Time flies and the show must go on.


Hi, this is Javier from Tolosa. One question, please.
Episode 119 - http://www.inglespodcast.com/2016/09/04/getting-dressed-and-undressed-airc119/ 
What do you wear for work (usually – as a habit)
You always say that after preposition goes -ing, then I do not understand "...for work", why it is not "... for working" or "What do your wear TO work"
Thanks for helping me. A hug.
Javier González
Tolosa (Gipuzkoa)

PREPOSITION + ___ing VERB
But also PREPOSITION + NOUN/PRONOUN
eg. What do you wear for/to work. CORRECT. “For” or “to” are prepositions and “work” is a noun.
“Work” can be a noun or a verb.
