There is frequent use of the first person narrative in Lessons 2, 14 and 15. For example in Lesson 2, the author often writes "I find it useful to...".
Similar occurences also take place once in Lesson 14 "I usually prefer my data in this intermediate format...", and 4 times in Lesson 15 "When I was first starting out, I’d write an R script..."

In the other lessons there is no use of first person pronouns to describe the author of the lesson, making the readability a little bit inconsistent.

A suggestion is that instead of saying in first person that "I find it useful to store these scripts in a separate folder", it is more consistent with the other lessons to say something like "It can be helpful to store these scripts in a second folder".

That seems reasonable. Would you be willing to submit a pull request updating those episodes to be consistent with the rest of the materials?
