Fun and informative!

Briski does a fantasic job of researching her subject matter, and for word nerds like me who are largely too lazy to do their own research, this is a great thing! I continue to be impressed by her ability to find interesting phrases and idioms to talk about. This is one of my favorite shows, and I look forward to it every week!
