Chatter

I would love to know more sayings/phrases! And not just correct ones but also funny tranlastions.

If you speak a different language than English I would love to hear literal translations of a phrase into English. If you are native English speaking I would love to know your favourite saying anyways!

hexchen handmade podcast – episode 8

Welcome to episode 8 of my podcast!

I am sorry for the delay again. I recorded on Thursday but had no time to edit until Sunday. There were also some lighting issues this time and I had to open and close the curtains a few times. Sorry about that.

Anyways I hope you enjoy the episode!
