    Episode 136: Myanmar Coup - What is Happening and Why?

    Episode 136: Myanmar Coup - What is Happening and Why?

    The Southeast Asian country of Myanmar has suffered from countless
    hardships and injustices in the recent past, from the mass genocide of the
    Rohingya Muslims to having one of the longest ongoing civil wars in the
    world.

    To make things even worse, on February 1st, the Myanmar military
    successfully deposed the democratically elected National League for
    Democracy (NLD) party through a military coup—seizing the power of the
    government and declaring a state of emergency and martial law.

    Three months later, the protests have resulted in more than seven hundred
    civilians dying—including children—and there have been over three thousand
    people put in prison. These numbers are rising and the situation becomes
    seemingly more and more complicated every day.

    Join us for this week’s episode as we discuss the ongoing crisis in Myanmar
    and what might be done to solve it.

    Episode 135: Advance Your Fluency With Adjective Alternatives

    Episode 135: Advance Your Fluency With Adjective Alternatives

    When speaking any language—as a native or as a learner—it can be very easy
    to fall into the habit of using the same general and uninteresting
    adjectives over and over. In English, just a few of these adjectives
    include “good”, “bad”, “fine”, and they are not only vague—but also
    downright boring.

    A great way to expand your lexicon, sound more fluent and have fun
    challenging yourself at the same is to learn and use some great alternative
    synonyms to replace them. Join us for today’s episode as we discuss some of
    these great examples and how they can help you take your fluency to the
    next level.

    Episode 134: Special Guest, Nate Douglas, Talks All About Kentucky

    It is common to hear people talk all about the big cities in the US—New
    York City, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, etc. However, a lesser-known
    city that lies in the hills of Kentucky is Louisville. Home to the famous
    boxer, Muhammed Ali, The Kentucky Derby, and Kentucky Fried
    Chicken—Louisville is a hidden gem that is overlooked too often by
    tourists.

    Join us on today’s episode as we talk to our special guest and native
    Kentuckian—Nate Douglas—about the Bluegrass State from black-eyed peas and
    twangy accents to the chill vibes and lifestyle of Louisville.

    Episode 133: Paige Takes a trip to the Grand Canyon

    The Grand Canyon is an enormous natural formation located in the southwest
    US in a state called Arizona that was formed by millions of years of river
    and wind erosion.

    At 446km length and 29km width, the canyon is a sight to see and is one of
    the most popular tourist attractions in the US with an estimated 5.9
    million tourists visiting every year. While visiting the Grand Canyon is
    for everyone, it is especially attractive to hikers looking to experience
    some of the trails and dangerously hot conditions for the experience of a
    lifetime.

    Join us for today’s podcast as Paige tells us all about her trip to one of
    North America’s greatest natural wonders including extensive hikes,
    dehydration, and sunset beers.

    Episode 132: Natural Disasters....from Earthquakes to Tornados

    Episode 132: Natural Disasters....from Earthquakes to Tornados

    The rise of climate change in recent years has affected our planet in many
    ways, one of which is the increase in frequency and magnitude of natural
    disasters. Every year, these forces of nature cause chaos, destruction, and
    death more and more frequently than before.

    Whether it’s tornados in Missouri, blizzards in Boston, or wildfires in
    Chile, natural disasters are a common part of life and culture for the
    people who live with them.

    Join us for today’s episode as we discuss natural disasters, their effects
    on the world, and how they will continue to increase unless we do something
    about it.

    Episode 131: Excuse my French, Lady of the Night, and other common euphemisms

    Episode 131: Excuse my French, Lady of the Night, and other common euphemisms

    A euphemism is a word or expression used in place of one that may be found
    offensive or suggest something unpleasant. Some euphemisms are intended to
    be funny while others are used to say something that would be very
    inappropriate to say otherwise.

    While they might seem confusing or vague to someone learning English,
    native speakers use them constantly and can really help you to sound more
    fluent.

    Join us for today’s episode as we discuss "doing your business”, “
    big-boned,” and other common euphemisms.
