It's rather repetitive, though I've enjoyed my time listening it. The purpose of being more present and insightful is thoroughly appreciated.

Extremely interesting and well structured.
For advanced English speakers with a base of linguistics.
I enjoyed every explanation. Although, it would be a great addition to increase the number of anecdotes, in order to keep the listeners more engaged.
