Listen and write phrasal verbs with other words that you will hear.
1. Todd: Right. I don't have too many controversial topics. There's actually technical reasons. One is it just takes too long for people to a controversial topic, so for example if you really want to get into controversy, you know, it leads to long conversation and people expressing their view....
2. Greg: OK, it's your site: your right to do whatever you want, but I just think maybe ... maybe some of your listeners would appreciate that and maybe you could have ... my suggestion is that you have a little one page, controversial page, or something. Just, you know, try it out, and if you get a lot of good reaction, you might want to continue and if it doesn't .
3. Todd: Well, actually, I'll give you an example of one I did recently. I had a woman come in, Stella, she did a great job on the videos, and one of her videos was about an usual sport in your country and hers was on cock fighting, and she explained cock fighting, or hen fighting, in Kenya, and right off the bat I knew that was going to be a problem because that's illegal in some countries and some people - animal activists - would be offended, but on the other hand, it's her culture and I don't feel comfortable saying - you know - what's right or what's wrong about someone else's culture so I just not putting it on just because I didn't want to have to take a side.
