Easily accessible easy to Linguistics

Go team! A truly skeptic, and literature based linguistic show that’s far from boring. With Wise Leader, Daniel Midgley and his hilarious sidekicks: Wise-Cracking, Ben and SuperSkeptic, Kylie Sturges (yes, *that* Kylie!), and MultiLingual, Hedwig. What a team🤗! This is what I call “Making learning Linguistics and Languages Fun!”
Please, please, please don’t go anywhere!
