Welcome! I'm Dash Stevens, the creator of the History of Language podcast. It details the history of languages all over the world, and the people that speak them.
I'm a historical linguist based out of California, and while working at a museum is fascinating and rewarding work, so is sharing this information about something so integral to our lives.
Thank you so much for tuning in, and I hope you enjoy the show!
In this brief episode, we take a look at Proto Norse, a language spoken in Scandinavia between the 4th and 8th Centuries CE, and which gave rise to the Old Norse language.
I hope you'll tune in this week, because we have a brand new episode coming out on Proto North Germanic! It's good to be back.
In this non-content episode, I explain the lack of updates and such.
The topic of this episode is the Gothic language. It's an unfortunately short episode, however, due to unforeseen technical issues and real life creeping in.
The topic of this episode is the Common Germanic Language. This is the parent language to German, English, Dutch, Norwegian, and many other languages spoken throughout Europe (and the world) today.
The topic of this episode is the Proto Indo-European Language. This is the parent language to Sanskrit, Greek, Latin, Gothic, Old Norse, English, Russian, and so many other languages spoken throughout Europe and Southwest Asia.

Lovely aperitif to deeper language research
If you're a language nerd like me and you want to learn more about it's history but don't know where to start - this is the podcast for you! Episodes are succinct and packed with information. I even learned how to count to 10 in Proto-Indo-European, which is always a useful party trick.
