Hokudai/Cast 50: Sympathy for SSC

Hokudai/Cast 50 has a good song by SSC (Seattle Standard Cafe) and Word/Play using both antonyms and synonyms. We have a very short interview about using Skype for classes and that's all, folks. Short, sweet, and full of empathy and sympathy (other words in Word/Play).
