Because Language – My No. 1 podcast
This is truly a great podcast, super useful as a reliable source of news from the field of linguistics and news about “all things” language. The hosts master the art of making complex topics accessible to the general public. It’s entertaining too – practically every episode has snippets that make me chuckle or sometimes even laugh out loud. With an episode of BL in my ears, I feel like I’m with good friends. More importantly, many of the the topics discussed by the show hosts and their guests go beyond linguistics, placing them in the context of social justice and social responsibility. If you’re interested in the science of language, or just language stuff in general, and if you want to have your mental muscles exercised, be entertained and even get your values and worldview challenged now and again, you should definitely check out the Because Language podcast.
