LangTime Chat, Episode 3


This episode’s theme was “inspiration,” and David and I were so inspired that we managed to abandon all plans I had made for the podcast and talked about everything from music to breviloquence, from airport mishaps to our initial enemy-ship. It’s a wild ride!

This episode also comes with resources: there are two pictures discussed in the podcast that we decided you just had to see, so you can see for yourself the psychology behind our first-ever photo together.

DAVID AND JESSIE’S FIRST PICTURE TOGETHER: 2013

DAVID AND JESSIE ARE NO LONGER BITTER ENEMIES: 2019

See? Even enemies can become friends.

As an additional bonus, I created a transcript for this episode! I hope this is something we can regularly offer, but I can’t make promises because it relies on technology… And we all know how that can go.

LangTime Chat, Episode 2


For this month’s episode of our podcast, David and I discussed conlang communities, focusing on online communities that offer conlangers the ability to connect from afar. Since David is much better educated than I am on this particular topic, he gave me a bit of a history lesson before diving into what’s available now. Along the way, we also managed to fit in discussions on everything from Brooklyn 99 to Men of a Certain Age. It all connects–I promise!

These resources/images are mentioned in the podcast; here they are so you can check them out for yourself!

LangTime Chat, Episode 1


After finishing our first live stream video, David and I sat down (actually, we continued sitting down) to record our very first podcast episode. This first episode includes discussions on how we became interested in linguistics and conlangs, what lessons we learned from our first conlangs, and how we almost could have met ten years before we actually met. Oh, and balloons. You never know where discussions will go in LangTime Chat!
