Episode 145: Esperanto for Beginners [7 Quirks]

Neat gin? Again? Yep. And also interesting history lessons. Although it sounds like I swallowed a Wikipedia page, I didn’t. I’m just a language nerd who goes off on Esperanto Safari – stay with us, because it’s all relevant to how you can grow a more successful business. Yep, we’re on Quirk Number 2, and Joe and I explain why you need your own language, and how it’ll help you gather more raving fans. This podcast also contains sheep, and roofs that aren’t collapsing.
