Two lessons I would be interested in.  One is possibly a Qing Wen: I am having trouble finding the right way to say "upside down", like when you are trying to put a key in the lock and you have it the wrong way. Related to that (maybe), what you say when your shirt is "inside out." Or putting in a battery and in English you'd say it is "backwards." 

Second idea is hair: I find some lessons on shampoo, but I am doing my kid's hair and I would love a lesson on combing, braiding, using a band or clip -- and, of course, crying when I try to get the tangles out.

One more thought: I dropped my iPhone in the ocean last week, and thanks to ChinesePod, I put it in a bag of rice when I got back and it still works!

Me too! This is full of vocabulary and sentences I can use every day. Maybe a lesson on using good manners with eating, like 请 给 我 牛奶。

I would be interested in hearing more about the origin and usage of 他不会吃你豆腐的. If not here, in another lesson.

Ah, where were you in 1987, when I was in Tianjin and made this awkward purchase! Back then, lots of fumbling through the dictionary, and they weren't available at the Friendship Store so there was a trip to the local pharmacy. I must say, however, that the traumatic experience burned the vocabulary in to memory.

Would it change the meaning if Mr. Li had said "shi nian duo le" instead of shi duo nian le?

I love that you now have download of just the dialog! Although, if I listen to this one a few times, I may start to believe that Shanghai is not the largest city in China:)
