About this Episode


I've just set up a brand new supporter tier at the $2/month level - join us here.

The patron benefits for the $2 level are access to the patron-exclusive feed with added posts, early access, and bonus clips.

You can ALWAYS upgrade or downgrade your tier and you'll never lose access to the patron-only messages. The show is free for all, and your support is valued no matter what.

If you think reading in another language is all about boring dialogues in dusty old books, think again!

This podcast episode will bring the magic of learning by reading right into the palm of your hand. Mobile phones can do everything in this world, so they can also help you learn languages...but not with boring apps and flashcards...why not try a hot romance novel or a thrilling action story instead?

This week's listener question is from Dam, who asks for the best apps to read novels on your phone - even offline!
