Love it, love it, love it

Lauren and Gretchen deliver interesting and sometimes complex information in an entertaining and relaxed format. They call their indie show “language nerdery”. The conversation between them is between amusing friends, between serious linguistic colleagues and between confused users of different Englishes (Australian and Canadian). All of this makes for a vibrant and fascinating conversation that has so easily been sustained for years of regular episodes - always fresh and always entertaining.

My only minor criticism is just a criticism of many podcasts of this type - they spend many precious moments at the beginning and end of their episodes promoting their Patreon, website and Twitter presences, pushing merchandise, requesting reviews, etc, etc. It doesn’t really detract from the content however (especially if you skip through it).

Love it!

Love this podcast. Interesting topics explained well. Perfectly pitched to its audience; it’s not too academic, nor over-explained. Any the delivery is so friendly, it’s as if I am hanging out with friends. My only complaint is I want more frequent episodes!
