  • Not about the episode in particular, but about the podcast in general: tWiW/Subtitle is THE best podcast ever! I’ve listened to every single episode, recommend it often and have taken much pleasure every time I listen and learn something new.
    Thank you for doing it. Thank you for all the amazing stories, and for being role models.
    As I prepare to have a podcast of my own (about soil), I look up to you guys on many aspects of research, story telling, and audio production.

  • Do you think that knowing how to communicate with animals could help humans know how to communicate with aliens? I feel that this is a little bit difficult. That is because those aliens are smarter than earthly animals. I believe that aliens want some kind of deciphered language. But in fact, I do not what rules can set up that language.
