介绍:
I give this episode five out of five stars for explaining about online reviews. Listen and decide for yourself. Tags: Travel Audio Index: Slow dialogue: 1:19 Explanations: 3:26 Fast dialogue: 16:00 Marisa: When we go to our favorite vacation spot in two months, let’s stay at a different hotel. Oscar: I like the hotel we always stay at. It’s in a convenient location and we’re already familiar with it. Marisa: That’s just it. It’s tried and true, but there’s no novelty and excitement in staying in the same place year after year. Oscar: I don’t need novelty. Marisa: Let’s just consider some of these other hotels I’ve been reading about. They are very highly ranked and their ratings are very good. Oscar: You’re putting strangers’ reviews above our own experience? Marisa: Of course not, but just look at this hotel. It received three stars out of four, and it has a lot of pros. Oscar: Let me see that. It also has some cons, such as being noisy and pricy. Marisa: Okay, maybe that isn’t the best example. I didn’t notice that they got dinged on those things, but let’s look at a few others. Oscar: I’ll keep an open mind, but I’m dubious about online reviews. I take everything I read with a grain of salt. The only people who post reviews are those who love it or hate it. Marisa: I’ll just find a hotel that everyone loves. Oscar: And that doesn’t break the bank? Marisa: Right. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
