DTD671 From the Mouth of Shakespeare and Shakespeare’s poems on Spotify

DTD666 Word Game

November 27, 2018

I've decided that you can never have too many word games in your podcast queue. Currently subject to an error here in the UK, this skill can be found by searching for 'Sush Productions' as there are around a million results for 'Word game' - so here we go again with big thanks to Patrick Steggle (lynnstggll@gmail.com).
