  • Jarring moments

    Although often wonderful, this show occasionally reveals insights into the beliefs of the podcasters which are so rigid, that it genuinely makes them very unpleasant to listen to.

  • Fascinating

    So much fun learning about the words, but dang! Gyles sometimes does go on. I love the sound of Susie’s voice and Gyles loves the sound of his own voice. He sometimes interrupts and talks over her and I want to hear what she has to say.
