Not everyone has fast internet, or access to internet at all. It might be because it's too expensive, or simply that the infrastructure isn't there.

Carmen breaks it down and tells us all about the offline-first movement.

I found this podcast to be very difficult to listen to because of has broken English. I spent more time trying to make sure that I understood exactly what words he was trying to say, rather than trying to focus on the content and value that he was going to provide us.

I found his story to be intriguing, however I had a very difficult time listening to this podcast because his English was so broken. I spend an awful lot of time just trying to put together what he was saying, instead of paying attention to the value that he was giving and what he had to say

"punch your feelings in the face" is perhaps too much of a hyperbole. Facing your fear is the best way to comfort it, if you have anxiety about a task, make a little progress on it and face it, but sometimes fear is quite valid and we should run away, say from an abusive relationship.
