Episode 22: Truth and Consequences

Filed under: Podcasts — nathalie @ 2:47 pm

If things had not been so wildly hectic here at Radio Arlecchino of late, this exciting episode would have appeared quite a bit sooner! But here it is at last, full of bone-chilling encounters of the second and third kind! Hypothetically speaking, that is. If you don’t tell the truth, you have to face the consequences. And we spell it all out for you, in every poignant tense and mood required. And what if Antonella were suddenly to be whisked away to Rome again, leaving Eric to his own devices in front of the microphone? Would it be sad, or would a clever plan be hatched? What if you were to listen in…?

  10. Ciao, Sujami,

    Thanks for your message. We’re very happy that you have found Radio Arlecchino both helpful and entertaining!

    Although Antonella and I are hopeful that at some point we may begin creating new episodes of the podcast, we have completed the 22 episodes for which the project had been funded. Funding for these projects is limited and the present economic situation in general, is, as you know, rather uncertain right now.

    So, I would suggest that you maintain your subscription through your RSS reader or iTunes so that if and when any new episodes go online you will get them automatically. Positive responses from our students here at the University and from listeners like you encourage us to hope that we may soon be back in front of the microphones again!

    In the meantime, thanks again and best wishes to you for your continued study of Italian.

    Buoni studi e grazie dell’ascolto!

  16. Great set of podcasts. I’m sorry I did not discover them sooner! In addition to being intelligent, entertaining and helpful, the main benefits I see to this podcast compared to others:

    1. Focus on usage, rather than introduction of vocabulary.
    2. Diverse vocabulary, with great mixing of English/Italian in the teaching dialogues.
    3. Open education — No advertising, no “levels” of access based on subscription.

    This is a great use of technology for education. I only hope more podcasts will be funded – Italian or otherwise!

  17. Thank for sharing your podcasts, they are just amazing.
    First of all I`ll like to tell that to be an Italian you need to know Italian language and be able to communicate with other citizen of this country.
    It took me approx. 3 months to learn Italian and 5-6 months to find right online program.

  25. Ciao! These podcasts are fabulous!! I have been struggling in my Italian classes at Hunter College in NY. Your grammar explanations and uses are perfect!! I am so happy you are leaving this information online for so long. Do you plan to do anymore podcasts?

    Grazie, mille!
