For all of the benefits of open source, such as pushing innovation and creating huge collaborative ways to build powerful products, there are also very legitimate concerns in terms of sustainability, exploitation of new developers, and the privilege of who actually has the time and resources to contribute to open source.

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.
