About the Hosts



Big is an American linguist who has been doing research in Nepal for six years. She grew up in southern California, and never misses a chance to make fun of her own accent. While she occasionally misses the beach and authentic LA Mexican food, she loves Nepal and has come to see it has her home!


In her free time Big enjoys riding motorcycles, knitting, and listening to other people’s podcasts.

Like Big, White is an American linguist living in Nepal. She has lived in Kathmandu for three years, conducting research in minority languages. She is originally from the state of Arkansas, and prides herself on being one of the only Arkansans in all of Nepal! 

When White isn't making the podcast, she spends her time at her local gym, where she loves lifting heavy things.
