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!

Audial Perfection for Glossophiliacs

Voiced by my favourite linguist/teacher Daniel, and his smooth-voiced radio comrade Ben, "Talk the Talk" is an absolute delightful series of linguistic explorations, examining the quirks and quarks of Earth's many languages with humour, respect, scientific enthusiasm, and all the interesting facts you could ever want. I've got every episode made thus far, and will continue to listen to them for as long as I can. MUCH RECOMMENDED!


I don't really listen to podcasts except this one, soooo good
