SOUND: Skype rings twice.
PRODUCER: LBS Production Office.
JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Hi! It’ Johnny Atsign.
PRODUCER: Johnny! Where are you?
JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Nairobi. I’m just back from a whirlwind tour of several African capitals and some other intriguing places.
PRODUCER: Still working on the [redacted] case?
JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Uh, huh. Mostly, I’ve been following the money.
PRODUCER: Money? In Africa? Those are some of the poorest countries in the world.
JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Yes and no. Most of the people are poor, but the countries are rich in terms of potential development. There’s a huge competition for control of those resources going on.
PRODUCER: But what does that have to do with your case?
JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) I’m just beginning to develop a firm connection, and that’s why I called. It looks like I’ll be here for at least another week or two.
PRODUCER: So more reruns?
JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Well, I guess so. Or the show could go on hiatus for a few weeks. Why not let the listeners choose?
PRODUCER: Yeah, why not? OK. We’ll handle it. Meanwhile, stay safe.
JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Sure thing. See in a few weeks.
PRODUCER: Bye, Johnny.
JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Goodbye.
