Susie and Gyles are amazing

He's hilarious (worked with them all!) and she's so interesting and informative. If you like etymology and linguistics, subscribe!

Excellent for those interested in words

The pairing of Dent and Brandreth works very well; the first an expert lexicographer and the second someone imbued with language, writing and broadcasting. Recommended for anyone fascinated by words and their origins, and each episode is guaranteed to give you chuckles and sometimes outright laughs.

So enjoyable

Lovely synergy between the hosts, and such interesting words that frankly are not in my normal lexicon! So glad I fell across this podcast.
