Nikpohl ,

Awesome - very professional and educational while entertaining, funny and full of great trivia

Probably one of the best of its kind, if there is such a kind. While I consider myself a decent English speaker, I listened to this podcast like an addict. There is lots to learn for everyone in an easy, entertaining way. The plot, the wit, the British humor and valuable background info makes this a very enjoyable experience.
I highly recommend it -can’t wait for the next book!
