With attack i normally dont go under 50 ms but thats not written in stone.
Release is normally always above 200 ms unless im looking for an effect.
My gosh. Start by talking about the model of the compressor, the type of material you are mastering, and the goals you are going for (e.g. "aggressive", "manipulative", "punchy", or "just gentle gain riding"). I think it would be easier to listen to musical "before/after" examples and make more sense than to talk about this topic.
