A podcast about words, language, and why we say the things we do

Customer Reviews


I really wanted to like this show. The problem with it is that they don't do any sort of in-depth analysis of the topic at hand. They just go over lists of words and expressions and they explain them. They do not open the doors to understanding the usage of a given word, or the cultural context of the English language. Anyone can get the meaning of a word from a dictionary, it is what is behind the word that matters. Honestly, they sound like Niles and Frasier having a conversation about words (without the fun).

Try It!

Who would think a 30 minute program about words and language could be so enjoyable? A good combination of erudition and humor, and the hosts are pleasant and thoughtful. Try it!

Information can be interesting

This podcast makes understanding words interesting. How do they do it? I dno't know, but this is a great podcast to catch.
