There’s nothing like walking to uni listening to the latest episode of Talk the Talk. I’ve never been able to listen to any podcast – except this one! It is a real treat for the ears. Dear Daniel Midgley, you are the Stephen Fry of Linguistics. I admire your ability to unpack complex linguistic concepts. You define and exemplify them so well. It’s always crystal clear. I also love all the interesting studies you mention throughout your show. And it’s just so much fun! I’ve recently read on the news that Alan Turing, WWII codebreaker, might be posthumously pardoned. And thanks to your show and your episode on breaking codes (episode 96, “The Copiale Cipher”), I knew who he was (and felt a bit smarter!) Talk the Talk is a fun, pedagogical program in which you’ll learn some of the fascinating things about language and have a good laugh at the same time (coz they’re funny peeps presenting!) The Daniel-Ben or Daniel-Jess duos work really well (love the complicity). Both entertaining and interesting, this is a not-to-be-missed podcast!

More reviews of Because Language
Seriously, I love podcasts and there are heaps. But I find Because Language to be highly entertaining, highly informative, and I love the peeps. I hang out for the next episode to bring me comfort and knowledge.

I couldn’t listen to more than 5 minutes when Kylie was talking. She just seems dumb and annoying, which annoys me bc it seems like she’s playing a stereotypical dumb woman.
