Since he was a kid, Tito Vargas has dreamt of having his own coffee plantation. It’s a dream his parents tried very hard to dissuade him from pursuing because they knew first-hand the uncertainty and hardship of the coffee trade. But Tito persisted, and he too would learn of the ups and downs of life as a coffee farmer, until he found a solution that had been right under his nose that whole time.  Study materials and a transcript of this episode are available at https://podcast.duolingo.com.

Cristian Gorbea had been running long-distance races for 20 years when he decided to enter his first ultramarathon. The race would begin at the base of a mountain in Argentina and last 24 hours — at least, in theory. For Cristian, the experience would last much longer, and test much more than his physical endurance. He’d test his faith, patience, and capacity to cede his fate to someone other than himself.

I am so grateful for this Duolingo Podcast. I have spent many hours improving my Spanish with Duolingo. These Podcasts are what I now need. I have to improve my Spanish listening skills and I love that the narrators speak slowly. In Mexico I regularly say:"Habla mas despacio por favor."
