While living in Beijing, Frank started LINGO, a free weekly podcast featuring the very best in global pop music. He started the show as a “study break” for his friends in the language industry. As the show gained in popularity, listeners from around the world sent in their “hello, hello” greetings and became an living part of the show. After several years of running the show on a weekly basis, LINGO’s main site went away and now the show lives on with sporadic episodes announced on the show’s Facebook Fan Page.

During his time in China, Frank was an integral part of the creation of a new Chinese language product for Innovate Language Learning, LLC — the folks who brought you such podcasts as KoreanClass101, JapanesePod101, and more than a dozen others. Frank co-wrote, co-produced, and co-hosted the Beginner series for ChineseClass101 which was rated the #1 educational podcast in the world in iTunes within weeks of their launch. Frank speaks Mandarin through years of self-study, though it’s been slipping due to lack of practice since he returned to the States.
