Listen and write phrasal verbs with other words that you will hear.
1. Todd: But actually the main reason is because, you know, when people , I don't know them a lot of the times I don't know the speakers very well and so they're not really comfortable arguing with me or arguing with somebody else they don't know about something that's controversial, so we tend to not do that.
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: You know, I think you can kind of see the problem, that sometimes and it's so easy to alienate maybe a small portion of your audience and I just don't want to do that.
