Hi, everybody!

Welcome back to episode number 86. In that introduction, you heard a short snippet from an ABC News report about Black Friday in 2018. Black Friday, as you may know, is one of the biggest shopping days in the United States. In today’s episode, we’ll talk about how Black Friday got started, how it grew in popularity and what it’s like in case you want to take advantage of sales on your next trip to the US.

This will all take place in the second part of this episode. So be sure to stay tuned.

As usual, since this is an expression episode, I’ll be starting with a joke, teaching an expression, that is "in the red," and doing some pronunciation exercises.
