It’s Something

I’m halfway through episode 1 and enjoying every minute! After a few more episodes I hope to discover an appropriate adjective for this wonderfully entertaining show.

Delightful

Two genial and knowledgeable hosts make for a very relaxing and entertaining stroll through the weeds of the English language. Without Gyles to lure Susie off the path of the discussion the podcast might resemble more closely NPR’s more focused A Way With Words. As it is it’s a lovely contrast.

The proper ratio

The soft, calm, tones of Suzie with the devil may care attitude of Miles makes for a great podcast. I laugh and I learn. Perfect combination.
