80: Language: Emotional & Nuanced Mandarin Chinese Language Moments with Tanya Crossman: NaPodPoMo 8
Do emotions transfer over into our other languages? Tanya Crossman returns to the Geopats Podcast to ponder/vent about the difficulties of expressing emotions and nuance in Mandarin Chinese. This episode is a collection of WeChat audio messages we left each other over the course of an evening last week.The total conversation was over an hour in audio length so I have a feeling might be back on the show later in November to keep going on this or another topic related to Mandarin Chinese.

What is happening on Geopats Podcast this month (November 2019)?
All month I will be doing a range of experimental micro episodes about language. The main focus, as usual in our language show, will be on Mandarin Chinese but I make zero promises to stick to one language. In fact, I fully expect that I will swerve towards and away from other languages throughout the month as well. This experimentation is part of National Podcast Posting Month, NaPodPoMo (it's international really but it started nationally in the U.S. many years ago so the name stuck) http://napodpomo.org/ and https://www.facebook.com/groups/napodpomo/. Oh, and I will make reference to my language YouTube channel so here is that link as well https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClzR7HySZTVb6g-tSzAhi5A
