Excellent show

Very clear, easy to understand podcast on a complicated topic. I was very impressed by the keen analysis and intellectual rigor of the research. It’s very interesting to see a podcast taking a more academic approach, as someone who is also in the letters & humanities field as a grad student. It’s the kind of lens I wish podcasters would employ more often.

Fascinating

I barely knew that forensic linguistics was a field, and now I'm kind of obsessed with it. Dr Hardaker takes us through cases in which language and linguistics have been key to solving a mystery or resolving a dispute, with a combination of enthralling storytelling and clear but detailed explanations of the linguistic elements involved. Really well done.
