The principle of Linguistic Relativity is the idea that a language's structure influences thought patterns of individuals who speak it. In turn, language influences culture, and cultural changes result in linguistic changes over time. We can't live everywhere, but we can get snippets of this magic through travel -- hence the podcast that is everything linguistics/culture/travel! Come nerd out with Patrice and Rachel every week at Language Nerd Central!

So smart, so funny!

I love how smart and funny these ladies are! I go in knowing I’m going to learn amazing stuff from their research and interviews and find myself giggling at their conversations and jokes. It’s like hanging out with your smart friends and it’s the best.

For language podcast cannot stay on topic

I am waiting for traveling light tips. Now I am hearing of symbols. Terrible writers and awful presentation.

Language and culture nuances around the world

Language and culture nuances are so interesting and Patrice and Rachel do a great job exploring the different fascinating facets of these topics in a fun way. I love their playful banter and the different segments that they do, including language news and Lost in Translation. Keep up the great work, y'all!
