Gripping

This is the most interesting podcast ever! It‘s not „only“ about the history of the language, but also a history of Great Britain. Once I started listening (episode 1, of course) I couldn‘t stop.
If you ever asked yourself, why it‘s „oxen“ but „foxes“, you‘ll get the answer in this podcast.

Life changing

This podcast has changed my view on language entirely, something my linguistics seminars at university were never able to do. Thank you!

So clear, yet detailed

Kevin Stroud manages to convey large amounts of information in an entertaining, clear and nuanced way. Just terrific! I love this podcast. Every episodes is full of amazing facts and history that, in many ways, are quite mind blowing! We use language every day, but rarely stop to consider the history of these words.
