Curious about the English Language?

This podcast is one of my favorites, as I work on catching up in chronological order. A fascinating and highly detailed view of English from its Indo-European origins. I studied linguistics in Grad School and this podcast stirs 40 year old memories and fills in a lot of gaps. Highly recommended.

Depth and breadth, feels like a master class

More interesting facts per minute than any other podcast.
