Get a good deal on an online auction. Learn more in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:15 Explanations: 3:22 Fast dialog: 16:26 Jermaine: Wait! You shouldn’t bid on that auction right now. Wait until the last minute. Bethany: This auction has a buy-it-now price of $25 and free shipping. Jermaine: Don’t pay the buy-it-now price. The minimum bid on this item is $10 and the current bid is only $12.50. There’s no reserve, so if you wait to bid, you may snag it for a much lower price than $25. Bethany: Okay, I guess I can wait, but why can’t I place a bid of $15 right now? Jermaine: First of all, the bidding on this auction goes up by increments of 50-cents, so the next bid would be $13.00. You could place a maximum bid of $15.00, but someone might outbid you at any time. Bethany: But couldn’t that happen anyway? Even if I wait until the last minute someone could sneak in and bid a higher price. Jermaine: You mean they could snipe you? They could, but not if you snipe them back. It’s all in the timing. Bethany: You seem to know a lot about online auctions. Jermaine: That item you’re bidding on, guess who listed it? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
