  1. Hey,

    Like, I happened to have stumbled upon your podcast, and like….I totally like it. Like, yeah 😀

    All joking aside, Like needs to be banished from the dictionary – it’s the most annoying verbal tic ever! There’s nothing wrong with pausing every once in a while.

    Only made it a third of the way through the podcast but I do plan listening to the rest later on tonight. The banter at 7:20 was hilarious.

    Interesting enough, I make a living writing vocabulary words in sentences, so there won’t be any filler words from me. Useful resource for those seeking to WORD UP: https://wordsinasentence.com/vocabulary-word-list/
