ni and nin
I would like someone to help explain the difference between using 你ni or 您 nin.
is nin more personal?
also I would like to mention that I spend an hour on chinese pod every day, I am quite enjoying my subscription.

It's 中国播客 zhōngguóbōkè (ChinesePod)
您 nǐn is more formal than 你 - you would use 您 speaking to people you don't know, or to people older than yourself.
