love it since 2018

When I was an ordinary college student, I want to practice my English skills, someone at quora recommended this podcast, then I got a lot from this program. Now is 2022, 4 years later, although I didn’t listen to it everyday, it is still useful for me. And I’m going to learning in Canada in September, as a student whose native language is not English, I think I will love it forever.

A few interesting episodes, but COVID-19 updates = yeah!

Every once in a while I found an interesting episode. I like that these are short. But the most benefit I feel like in from listening to these is the two week update of Covid information! That is great & easy to share!
