Sample transcript

Maura: I think that people in other countries know about Vancouver too. Yeah a lot of people might know Vancouver because Vancouver is where we are going to have the Winter Olympics in 2010.
Harp: Yup, the next Olympics are in Vancouver. And we just want to say hi to everyone who is listening to us in Vancouver.
Maura: Yeah, cause we know we have some listeners in Vancouver so we are saying hi from Montreal.
Harp: So if you don’t know, Vancouver is on the west coast of Canada and it’s basically right on the ocean.
Maura: And because it’s on the west coast it has a very different climate to the rest of Canada.
Harp: Yes, it’s one of the few places that isn’t cold.
Maura: And Harp and I like that a lot.
