Word Nerds for the Win!

Enlightening, entertaining, enjoyable -- and sometimes even provocative. But never judgmental. So many things to learn about and the host and the brother and sister team all add to the mix. Just keeps getting better and better. Keep up the good work!

Language lovers rejoice

If you love languages and pronunciation this is the podcast for you! It is so interesting to learn how some words are pronounced and which language influenced the pronunciation. I learn something new with each podcast.
