Loved this episode topic, although I wish it was a little longer! Would be great to have her back and let her really expound on one or two linguistic topics. Jonathan was so excited he kept jumping around from topic to topic haha

(also during the first commercial break the ad and epsiode audio were playing simultaneously, I don't know if that just happened for me? between 17:00 and 20:10)
