Udsekju Podcast gaafik!

I am not an academic linguist but I am what I would describe as a language enthusiast and conlanger. I must say that this is the best podcast on the subject. I have enjoyed learning about linguistic terms and concepts, agreeing with their opinions on language culture and rolling my eyes when I disagree.

I also enjoy the story in this show, as it has persisted since 2011. The host grow and change, and you can watch George grow from a wee babby into a father, and grad student. It's a humanizing element.

They also have David Peterson on often, and that's generally a treat.

Heck yes!

As an extremely new conlanger, this has been an incredibly helpful resource, and it's really fun to listen to - the hosts are awesome! I just wish they were able to put episodes out more often!

Great!

I'm really into conlanging, and I find this very enjoyable to listen to, even when I'm not doing anything to do with conlangs or linguistics. Some of the things said in each podcast inspire me to add to my conlangs. I love it
It really inspired me to go to college to major in linguistics. I've listened to it since 2011 (when I was in high school) and I still listen to it constantly. I've listened to it when working on photography finals in the darkroom, when studying for my linguistics classes, during my knitting meetings, when I'm driving, and when I'm conlanging!
It feels almost like being in a friendly, informal linguistics/conlanging club meeting with a couple friends.
Couldn't ask for a better podcast.
Thank you!
