You were great! I liked when you talked about being a movie star in Las Vagas. My parents went there.
Even though I sat next to you when you were deciding on what to say on your podcast, it amazed me on how you said it in words!
I loved the music!

Great podcasting Meghan!I loved alot of things about yours.
One of them is i could really visualize when u said "Snow mountains towering over you.That
was a great visualation Meghan!
Another thing i like is that when you said "Feel like you want to party?Go to Las Vegas.You will feel as if you are a movie star walking through the flashing lights.But then you also made a whole different side saying, "Or if you want to have a relaxing day visit one of the high Plateau, grazing sheep and cattle roming around the flat lands."
I absaloutly loved you podcast.I am soo exited for mine even more!!!


Ps.I really liked when you said that they relli on the Hoover Dame for the water,Because of it's dry land in Nevada.That is a great and absaloutly important fact about Nevada.
Pss.I liked your music in the background.

You did a wonderful job with your podcast. You included a lot of information and delivered it well. I have never been to Nevada, but I wouldn't mind feeling like a movie star in Las Vegas. I also would love to vacation in Lake Tahoe. I can only imagine how peaceful it would be to kayak there.
I loved how you made every place in Nevada sound so interesting. It's a trip I may have to take someday.

I did not know that there were other cool
places beside Las Vegas. People in
Nevada depend on the Hoover Damm. Meghan, is that the only place they get
their water from??? Nevada sounds like a
wicked fun place!

That was really good.I like how you had a lot of description in the first sentence.I like how you mentioned that Nevada relies on the Hoover dam for water because of it's dry climate.I also liked how you mentioned the mountains I never knew there are mountans in Nevada.Another thing I liked was how you described the cool air.Those things really grabbed my attention.Again,GREAT job.

Wonderful work Meghan. I think I will go to Lake Tahoe. You made it sound almost magical. Las Vegas sounds excting but I don't trust myself gambling. Nevada has rich resources and so much to do. The temperature at night in the summer sounds perfect! Very thorough research Meghan!
