    #131 Finding Your 'Why' with Douglas Oliveira (English4Reason)

    Douglas Oliveira (English4Reason) kindly joined me on the podcast for a casual conversation about language learning, but more specifically we spoke about passion and finding your purpose in life, or your 'Why'. It was an inspiring and motivational chat and I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
    Douglas also has his own podcast, The Reason Why, where he interviewed me about my 'Why'. Definitely check that out too.

    #126 Why Can't I Pronounce 'TH'?

    I had a message about ordinal numbers and, specifically, the pronunciation of the TH sound in them like in "fourth". It's a great question! In this episode, I go over what ordinal numbers are and give my thoughts on pronouncing them.
    Be sure to check out next week's episode (the link will be here) with Pronunciation With Emma. She's great at answering these kinds of questions!
