actually, there are some like that.
i can't remember the titles off the top of my head... but there was one on colors and one weather that were heavy on the vocab. the banking story that's currently running is all function-based and heavy on banking vocab. the notorious "destruction of nature" lesson was also heavily vocab-based. there are others that escape my memory at the moment. but generally speaking, tho, if a lesson is heavily vocab-based we try to keep the vocab in the pdf (and in the review track for the newer lessons). the reason for this is, past experience has shown that just listing related vocab makes for a boring audio lesson. so for those interested in related vocab, we mention some important ones in the podcast and list it in the pdf & review track for those who want to expand their vocab.
as for the stories that I
personally, i like funny stories. but i try to tell the writers to keep keep a balance.
i think variety is key.
