Fantastic

Thank you so much for creating this podcast, and for putting the Russian with emphasis in the show notes along with the English translation. My family emigrated to the US form the Soviet Union when I was a baby, so I grew up speaking Russian at home, but my vocabulary is super limited, and I’m missing out on idiomatic expressions, slang, swearing, and shades of meaning (to say nothing of grammar). I learn a TON from your incredibly well-made podcast. Thank you! If you taught a Russian course, I would take it.
