This is AMAZING!
There's not many ASL podcasts, but even if there were 1,000,004 of them, this one would still be the best and most enjoyable. It has it all: ASL education, ASL history, humorous hosts, wonderful guests, and it's rich, man, it's rich! Anyway, if you can't tell, I really enjoy it.
Great ASL Pod
Even if you are new to ASL (like me) this is a great ASL podcast. The back and forth of the hosts is hilarious at times and their interviews and thoughts are insightful. Great stuff.
I’ve been listening for a few months. It’s pretty cool but I don’t like the Rules. I like the silly song but I don’t want to have to listen to a podcast with a notebook and pen and the rule book . Sure, I’m a bit of a newbie and barely grasp the rules but this is not the format for learning them. I want to hear about all sorts of ASL stuff even if you have to mention MMP. Thanks.
