    In this episode I'm extremely honoured to be joined by one of my very own podcasting idols. Mark has been running Coffee Break Podcasts for over a decade, and now delivers over 2,500,000 language lessons every month to listeners around the world.

    In the episode we discuss his language past, present, and future, as well as how he started Coffee Break and grew it to where it is today. We also talk a bit about the state of language education in schools today, and speak a bit in "Scandinavian" :D
