Episode 74: Optimism


Are you optimistic? Do you think that your glass is always half full? Or are you more of a pessimist and see the same glass as half empty?Join your hosts Jennifer (the USA) & Dan (the UK) as they chat about their attitudes & approaches to life. During their native speaker conversation they discuss whether they see themselves as optimistic or pessimistic  people, times when it’s possible to be both and how you, dear listener, could be more optimistic about your life.
