Like listening to your two best friends

There's a joy that I feel when listening to Mark and Aven that I can only show with my 5-star rating, though I wish it could be higher. I am not a classicist, nor am I a linguist, but I find every topic they cover to be compelling because of their enthusiasm for it. I know where to go when I wonder why a modern term seems randomly assigned a meaning, because they will be able to bring me right to the root of the situation. They also excel because they teach with passion and not condescension, which makes even someone as unfamiliar with these topics as me feel comfortable learning through their episodes.

One of my favorites!

I'm not an academic, I've never studied the classics, I don't know any Greek or Latin or linguistics or etymologies (or cocktails, for that matter!), and yet this is one of my favorite podcasts. Two smart cookies talking things they love—you can't help but get sucked in. So happy I found this!
