  1. It’s just so bad that the poor network spoilt everything. It made it seem like you’d ask me a question and I’d respond weeks later. I wish it had gone better than it went, but I’m glad I tried out something I’ve always been sceptical about.

    I had a great time talking with you, Coffee! I’m just so sorry it didn’t go as well as I’d wanted it to. Thanks for having me as a guest on your podcast!

      It went fine Obinna. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Everyone seems to have the same reaction, I just think we are not that used to hearing ourselves

  2. 😯 Wow, that was the shortest podcast that I have heard so far on your blog. They are usually around 57 minutes.

    I really enjoyed your podcast with Obinna and it is a pity that it only went on for 23 minutes and 45 seconds.

    Apparently, the internet service in Nigeria is not as great as the rest of the Western world.

    Honestly, I have been thinking about using Skype on my smartphone or laptop computer to conduct the podcast interview.

    My major concern is that my surroundings can be a bit noisy at times and I want things to be perfect.

    You made it sound like I was this big blogging celebrity who everyone wants on their podcast.

    And, thank you for the shout out, my friend.

      Renard, you come across as incredibly knowledgeable and your willingness to help out your fellow bloggers is amazing. We had to call each other about 5-6 times throughout the podcast since the service kept on dropping. Hopefully Obinna will do it again. I’d love to hear him talk about school and his aspirations for the future. He’s such an interesting person.

        1. They’re always grouped together, Trinidad and Tobago. I always liked the name Trinidad better than the name Tobago. One reminds me of hilarious films, The St Trinians films and the other of Tobacco which I’m not a fan of at all! It’s funny how childhood misinterpretation or connections continue to affect our perception even when we ‘know better’!

          1. 🙂 The are always grouped together because it is a twin island Republic; hence the name Trinidad and Tobago and it is also officially known as, the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.

  3. I really like it that Obi gives to the community (teaches for free). It gives other kids a chance. A chance he didn’t have. That’s very cool and noble.

    And yes, he IS very smart.

    You two talking about age and generations had me in stitches.

    It was fascinating to hear more about Nigeria.

    I enjoyed this podcast a lot.

    I have to admit that it tickles my ego to hear you talking about me.

      Thanks Goldie, it seems like everyone wants to know if that was an outer “ego” or an inner “ego”!!!

  4. Chemistry was one of my favorite subjects at school. I loved Biology and Chemistry but HATED Physics. It was Sister Brigid, the hag from hell.
    Do you get teaching credits? Would you like to be a teacher?
    I went to school in England with a Nigerian girl who was Ibo, her surname was Ibe. Funnily enough she lives in the US now too!
    Obinna your voice is very clear and easy to follow. I know you said you had connection issues but it AMAZES me how clear it is to talk from one side of the world to the other! Technology is truly incredible.
    I grew up in London through the IRA years so I have an idea of how it is to deal with terrorism. I’m sorry you have to deal with that but I’ve read a lot and I know it can be unsettled.
    What other countries would you like to visit? Canada is COLD! Be warned! Turkey is warm at least. I liked Turkey but I like Greece and Cyprus better.
    Goldie is female! I actually don’t care, I just love reading HER comments and posts and SHE is so smart that I’m claiming her for my team!
    I enjoyed this podcast a lot, I was quite sorry it was short so I hope you’ll do it again Obinna 😊

    1. Oh WOW, Britchy! Thanks a lot!
      Funnily enough, I HATED chemistry as much as you hated physics 😂 😂 That subject gave me serious headaches. It still does.

      I would ABSOLUTELY love to be a teacher. It’s what I actually want to be later in life. (And no, I don’t get teaching credits.)

      Your classmate’s surname is quite similar to mine. Mine is Anyaibe.
      “Ibe” could mean “mates” or “peers”
      My surname, Anyaibe, is literally translated “Eyes of his peers”… As in a role model or something 😂

      Wait, Canada is COLD? 😐😓
      *slowly crosses out Canada from my to-visit list*
      Oooh, I like Greece, too! I also loooove France and of course, Britain. To be honest, Britain is the #1 country I want to visit. I hope to live there someday, but I heard living there can be expensive for immigrants. (Is that true?)

      You know, I listened to your podcast again and pondered on your theories about Goldie’s gender. You’ve convinced me. 😂 Goldie IS a girl. I totally agree!

      I hope to do a podcast with Coffee again, hopefully sometime soon.
      Thank you so, so much for listening to the podcast, Britchy. I’m excited to hear you enjoyed it. 😊

    1. Thanks, Seyi! I’m glad you liked the podcast.
      I don’t know… I’ve heard Canada is COLD. I can’t even feel comfortable in a room with the AC turned on. 😭😭😭
      I’m a “yay, sun and heat!” kind of person.

  5. Love the sponsor.
    Africa? Awesome.
    I hate to say it, but with his accent, it is difficult to understand him. As well as the problems with low volume on his end, the call dropping out, and such.
    That’s cool to be able to speak different languages.

    1. 🙂 Hi Rue, I am blaming the poor internet connection for the low volume.

      I understood every word Obinna said.

      I have heard African presidents speak via CNN and the BBC; so my ears have become fine-tuned to their accent.

      I believe that Skype has a much better quality than Facebook Messenger.

      By the way, I accepted Bottomless Coffee 007’s offer to appear on the podcast.

      But, there is a problem; I deleted Facebook (so I can’t communicate with him on that forum) and I have Skype (And Microsoft thought that Bottomless Coffee 007 was a naughty boy and locked him out of his account).

      I do hope that you understand every word that I say in the upcoming podcast since the accents vary from region to region.

      Now, it is all up to Bottomless Coffee to answer his email and get back to me.

      I am looking forward to doing the podcast interview today!

      1. bottomlesscoffee007

        wow Renard. I’ll do what I can, but I will not be able to do the podcast today. Ill let you know when I get a Skype account back up.

    Good! I really enjoyed listening to this piece, though the network made it seem like you were replying late.
