In this episode, there are two parts. In Part 1, you'll hear a joke, practice your pronunciation and learn the expression "Off the Record".
In Part 2 of today's lesson (available on Thursday, September 15th), we’re going to talk about The Monster Study, a wildly unethical study (by today's standards) that is about orphans and language development, specifically stuttering.
To amp up the learning experience in episode 129, I explain challenging words and phrases as I go along.
