  • Great show!

    Recently caught up and now I'm in withdrawal between episodes! I don’t study linguistics but both of my sisters do and it's great to have an entry-level way for me to learn enough to ask them about stuff that they're learning in school!

  • Love it

    I love linguistics, and this is a great podcast. I recently discovered it and started from the beginning. I’m on episode 53 and what I find most annoying is a) gretchen talks way too fast (and this is coming from a fellow Canadian), and b) the amount of air time that is taken up by them asking for my money just to access more content, when having ads would solve both problems is slightly annoying
