I want to thank Mamen from Biescas, Aragon in the Pyrenees for introducing me to Luke and Luke’s English podcast. She said how much she enjoys listening to Luke and how much she learns from him.
When I saw Luke’s podcast on iTunes I immediately recognised his artwork, his album art, but I had never actually listened to his podcast. That was a few months ago and since then I’ve become a fan and a regular listener, so I was thrilled when Luke agreed to be interviewed on Mansion Interviews. So let’s dive in (vamos a empezar)
Here’s Luke from Luke’s English Podcast.
