Short and sweet

These podcasts are useful and interesting — and a good way to get insight into American slang and idioms. Great for learners “on the go”.

It's in English and Chinese.

Very useful for learners of English and natives who want to know the origin of the idiom/slang ..BTW, to the other reviewer , thanks for review but my name is Lewis not Adam. Also, I am located in Beijing, China. Most of my listeners are in China or of Chinese background in other countries so I use a translator from English to Chinese. Sorry if you cannot speak Chinese. Just listen to the English. Thanks

Informative

Lewis does a good job explaining English idioms, their origins, and contemporary use. His co-hosts help make it more interesting. They explain it in Chinese and Chinese English learners are obviously a target audience for the podcast. It doesn't seem confusing to me (when it's in English I understand, when it's in Chinese I don't... seems pretty simple and straightforward). If you're interested in English idioms, give it a whirl. It may float your boat while knocking your socks off. Or it may not be your cup of tea. If that's the case you can always ask for a refund. Anyway, that's just my two cents on it...
