Lovely aperitif to deeper language research

If you're a language nerd like me and you want to learn more about it's history but don't know where to start - this is the podcast for you! Episodes are succinct and packed with information. I even learned how to count to 10 in Proto-Indo-European, which is always a useful party trick.
