So grateful...

As a linguist and a former missionary and current member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am thoroughly impressed and grateful for the fair, kind, and unbiased approach to the latest episode on missionaries and language learning. You did such a great job representing the average missionary’s experience when it comes to serving a mission and learning a new language. I’ve enjoyed listening to this podcast every so often, but this latest episode has “converted” me into a longtime listener ;) Thank you so much!

Very Impressed

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or Mormons, I have rarely been so impressed by the fairness that was afforded to the discussion around our faith and the tremendous effort and transformation of life and soul that goes into learning those languages on a mission, having learned three languages of my own on a two year mission. Thank you for your podcast, keep up the good work!
