Couldn’t recommend more sincerely

Fans of linguistics, search no more! This is the podcast for you! The is funny, congenial and of course has a deep understanding of linguistics and the ability to make it accessible to all.

Love this show!

I just discovered this show and it’s my new favourite. I love John McWhorter...absolutely the best host ever.

pretty good

This podcast has been one of my standards since its inception. Amusing and informative. I still miss Vuolo and Garfield, but McWhorter has his own charm.
