Excellent

This podcast is exactly what I needed, and I have no clue how it went under my radar. I'm definitely going to be binging all the episodes while working to supplement my love of conlanging that I've been to busy to do.

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!
