A perfect podcast

I have loved language for as long as I can remember. I studied Chinese in middle school, moving on to Latin in high school before majoring in Roman Lit in college. The development of language has always fascinated me, and linguistics will forever be my passion.

I recently made the choice to live a vegan lifestyle. It was a natural change for me, and veganism is now another passion of mine.

This podcast perfectly blends two of my favorite things together. I also think non vegans would find this podcast absolutely fascinating.

I can’t wait for more episodes.

I really, really wanted to like this podcast…

I was really excited to find this podcast, being as I am, so infatuated with etymology and anecdotal history. However,I found it extremely difficult to get past the authors nauseatingly idealistic view of animals. I just found that her vegan bias found its way into nearly every other sentence and the constant sneering down her nose at us non-vegetarians only added to the droning nasal quality of her voice.

I really, really wanted to like this podcast but it’s difficult to listen to someone who condescendingly weaves disdain for us carnivores with actual interesting Information. This podcaster would be the doctor who told you that she hated giving you the bad news about your cancer but you deserved it anyway because you ate so poorly, didn’t exercise properly, must have smoked at some time (please don’t lie to her with your bacon infused breath) and were probably just a bad person to begin with.
