Have you ever wondered why we use certain phrases or words? Where did they come from? What's the origin of that saying? Why do we say "Rule of Thumb"? Why should we mind our "P's & Q's"? Why do we put something "kitty corner"? Hosts Scott and Liam Kelly have the answers to those questions "where does that come from?" & "why do we say that?" We know you could just look it up online, but why not have us do the work for you and have a fun time listening!
