A chat with Elle Charisse, the host of Speaking Tongues Podcast, where language and culture are celebrated through storytelling. Elle shares a bit about how she grew an interest in languages growing up in New York City and how curiosity in languages and culture led to the creation of her podcast, where she converses with multilinguals from all over the world. Elle and I touch on a range of deep, thought-provoking topics seldom discussed in the largest of language learning spaces, from representative language in course material to the issue of homogenous speaker panels at language conferences to the need for inclusion of all multilinguals from all walks of life. This is a conversation you don't want to miss!
