I have been a long time CPOD user and it has helped my studies massively. I like all the explanations and other tidbits I learn in the lesson podcasts. I like them so much that I often take notes in the middle of podcasts and don't like to listen to podcasts when I am not near a computer because I won't be able to put my notes into Anki.
A solution would be to include in the dialogue PDF a quick breakdown of the main points that John and Jenny discuss in the podcasts.
Sometimes if a lesson seems a bit easy for me, I don't want to skip it, but I don't want to spend 15-20 min listening to the lesson. I would love to be able to read through the pdf, sort of like a textbook, and put anything I like into ANKI. This way reviewing lesson explanations would be very fast without having to listen to the whole podcast again.
Apologies if this point has been discussed in the past. I have taken a 6 month break from studying Chinese and am just getting back into it hardcore. I find Cpod to be extremely useful (by far the most useful resource I have encountered) and this is the only suggestion I have as to how my learning/using experience could be improved. Actually this would be a massive help for me.
