It's An Omnishambles! Our Fave New Words To Be Added To The OED
Listen now
Description
We discuss Extinction Rebellion, Meghan and Harry's African tour documentary for ITV and Deborah Orr, the brilliant journalist who sadly died this week.  And it's our favourite time of year: that time when The OED adds its new words into the dictionary. 2019's additions include 'omnishambles', 'nomophobia' and 'simples'. We unpick the good, the bag and the ugly new entries. The High Low is currently on tour! The next High Low Experience tour date is Monday 28th October in Manchester.
