THE BEST PODCAST

I am Kevin’s fan and I’ve been on a journey with him for over 4 years. I love the podcast with all my heard and I feel it’s taught me more about the history of English than everything I’ve learned from school. Also, I am from Russian and I am an English teacher, so his podcast has helped me improve my English. I always relisten to the episodes before going to bed, they lull me to sleep. ❤️❤️❤️
