A Gem…

This is definitely my favorite podcast as an English learner. I learn very interesting stuff, the topics are varied, I increase my general culture and at the same time I improve my English. The format is perfect too, I can stay focused during 25 minutes, I have each time the feeling to have achieved something.
A big thank to Alastair and his team, congrats! 😊
