Hi there and welcome back!

It's been a while, so yes, half an hour finished recording sounds like a good start. You could also do a quick test just to check if your equipment didn't get rusty :wink:
But you're in the MW already in any case.

Have fun! :D
Cheers, Ava.

Thank you for the welcome back! The equipment is happy to be back in service. :thumbs:

I did have a quick question. I'm about six minutes into recording and I came across an "e.g." Should I read this as written? Ee-gee? I tried to check for guidelines but I may have missed it.

I would translate it from Latin and say "for example" -- much friendlier to the listener, but let's hear from Ava.

I agree, it's up to Ava here, but that's what I always do as well -

e.g. - ' for example' or 'such as'
i.e. - 'that is' or 'in other words'
viz. - 'namely'

Honestly, I don't mind much either way. Since this is a science project, I guess our listeners will be fine either way too. :D


Chad, you're in for section 23, thank you! Don't forget that this is the last section, so you'll need the book outro as well.
Have fun!
Cheers, Ava.

Question - Do you want the Bibliography at the end of the chapter on Bacteria included? It provides suggestions for additional reading and a Note. (see p. 95 in the text)

Bibliography - no; Note if it is "interesting". I'll leave that decision to you. :wink:
